Quote from Dr. Phil Williams, superintendent of Trion City Schools:
"It is a great honor for Trion High School to be one of 264 public schools out of 120,000 to receive the National Blue Ribbon School award. It is a tribute to the commitment and desire of our students, teachers, parents, administrators, Board of Education, and (our) community. In 2008, Trion High School was named as a Georgia School of Excellence. The Georgia Department of Education had confidence that we could compete nationally because our students continually score in the top 10% of schools across the state. Being one of only two high schools across the State of Georgia to receive the national award is a direct reflection of our commitment as stewards of our students' education and character. We embrace the challenge of preparing our students to excel in a world that has become increasingly competitive and diverse; a world in need of leaders who are anchored in a sense of responsibility and respect for others. We have a certain sense of purpose at Trion City Schools and that purpose is for our students to receive a world-class education, so we begin our rigorous training in pre-K and do not stop that training until each child walks across the stage as they graduate. Our students and teachers have a great attitude towards our purpose and that determines our successes. Trion City Schools has a tremendous academic reputation across the State of Georgia, and we are proud to represent our state."
