McCombs honored by Georgia Junior Science & Humanities Symposium

Statesboro High School Science Teacher Rich McCombs was selected as the 2022 Georgia Region Teacher of the Year by the Georgia Junior Science & Humanities Symposium during its annual event held on the campus of the University of Georgia.


As part of the National Junior Science & Humanities Symposium, each state region selects one teacher whom they believe demonstrates exceptional contributions to promoting student research. McCombs received a $500 stipend as part of the recognition.


The Georgia Junior Science & Humanities Symposium provides an opportunity for high school students from across the state to present the results of their original science, engineering, technology, or mathematics research before a panel of judges to compete for military-sponsored scholarships awards. The top five presenters are invited to advance to the national level of the event.


McCombs is a three-time teacher of the year receiving the coveted accolade at all three schools he’s served: Pahokee Middle Senior and Lake Worth High Schools in Florida and Statesboro High. He was also a top-three finalist for the SECME National Teacher of the Year.
