JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A celebration Tuesday night at McWillie Elementary School in Jackson has achieved the highest state ranking possible of a level 5.

Individual children who have tested highly in state competitions were honored Tuesday night along with teachers and parents.

But Principal Margrit Wallace says when it comes to supporting every learner and being a star school, it is a group effort.

"Being a star school is not an easy accomplishment it takes much focused work and its committed teachers and students that are willing to learn and parents that are involved--partners in educating their children," Principal Wallace said.

One of WLBT's own was among those honored Tuesday night.

Producer Kevin Myers was named McWillie Elementary's Parent of the Year.
