Students from all four high schools in the Warren County school system were recognized for their selection to the Governor's Scholars Program (GSP) at the May 21 meeting of the Warren County Board of Education.
Thirteen Warren County Public Schools high school juniors have been selected to participate in the prestigious Governor's Scholars Program this summer, and five others have been selected as alternates.
GSP is a summer residential program for outstanding high school students in Kentucky who are rising seniors. The Program originated in 1983 as a result of Kentucky leaders’ concern that the state’s “best and brightest” were leaving the Commonwealth to pursue educational and career opportunities elsewhere without fully understanding the potential of their talents at home. Students who are selected attend the Program without charge. In the spirit of partnership, the Office of the Governor, the Kentucky State Legislature, and private enterprise come together to provide the financial support for the Program.
The Program’s mission is to enhance Kentucky’s next generation of civic and economic leaders. The first class numbered 230 and was housed on one college campus. Since then, the Program has enjoyed excellent support and grown to over 1,000 students on three campuses.
Selected for GSP this year from Warren County Public Schools:
Greenwood - Caroline Anne Davis, Sarah Elizabeth Suggs, and Rachel Ashley Sunderlin.
South Warren - Anne Thomas Belcher, Allison Jane Curry, Carter Christopher Jackson, and Nicole Marie Martin.
Warren Central - Natalie Rain Allen.
Warren East - Natalie Janay Malione, Mariah Michell Montgomery, Hannah Taylor Parker, Hannah Brooke Turner, and Macy Elaine Young.
Alternates from WCPS: Greenwood - Hira Arshad, Kari Ann Bertram, and Jennifer Marie King; South Warren - Madeline Carlisle Stuart and Emily Kathleen Tyler.
