​2020 Georgia Migrant Student of the Year Award

Ms. Paola E. Lopez is a Migrant Education student of Jeff-Davis County Schools. She was born in Baxley, Georgia and is the proud daughter of Jose and Maria Lopez. Growing up Paola saw how hard her parents worked in the fields. They spent countless hours in the cold and in the heat working in agriculture hard laboring jobs. It was difficult for her to see her parents working so hard every day so that they could give her sister and Paola a better life. She decided to give her parents something in return for their hard work so she focused on her academics. Paola put all her efforts in her studies and acknowledges that she was able to improve her grades with the help of the Migrant Education Program. Paola is currently enlisted with the Army and will leave for basic training in the month of July. When she finishes with basic training, she plans to also enroll in college to study criminal justice. Her ultimate dream is one day have a place in the FBI and be successful in everything she sets her mind to do. It is an honor for the Georgia Migrant Education Program to present the Migrant Student of the Year award to Ms. Lopez.​
