The Stephens County Development Authority and Stephens County High School program recently named Jarrett Segars as the December Work-Based-Learning Student of the Month. 

Segars is a senior at the high school and is employed at Quality Foods in Toccoa. He works in the Quality Foods office, overseeing the cashiers and courtesy clerks, counting tills, giving change to cashiers, and making a nightly deposit. Store Manager Jonah Segars said “Jarrett excels in customer service with respect and promptness and always meets or exceeds the task he has in front of him.”

Segars displays the same work ethic at school, where he has been active in agriculture and band. He finished the Agriculture Leadership in Animal Production Pathway, and his teacher, Ethan Holton, stated, “Jarrett was an outstanding student with a great work ethic and always willing to help others.”

Segars participates in both marching band and the concert band, and band director Zachary Towery describes him as “a solid contributor who was consistently positive.”

Stephens County Development Authority President and CEO Britanny Ivey said Segars has remained focused despite his busy work, school and extracurricular schedules, and made excellent grades. 

Segars has plans to pursue a career in business upon graduation, and his student advisor, Ann Hunt, also commends his work ethic, adding that he never complains and always gives 100% on everything he does.

The Student of the Month for December was sponsored by Bulldogs Car Wash and Express Lube, SouthState Bank and the Stephens County Development Authority.
