Eight Highlands juniors have been accepted into honorary scholarship programs this summer.

The Governor's Scholar Program is a six week summer residential program for outstanding high school students in Kentucky.

In order to participate in the program, students must be nominated by their high schools and then compete on a state-wide level. In addition to an academic profile that includes difficulty of course load, G.P.A., and at least one standardized test score, the application requires an outline of all extracurricular activities, a history of volunteer service, and a list of job positions held. Teacher recommendations include both quantitative evaluation and qualitative descriptions of the student’s performance and potential. The final component of the application is an original essay.

HHS juniors accepted into the Governor’s Scholar Program (GSP) are:

Kayla Groneck
Isabella Keller
Helen Ross
Payton Epperson

HHS students accepted into the Governor’s School for the Arts (GSA) program are
Nadia Ibrahim – Drama
Sophia Manyet – Drama
Adrian Mester – Instrumental Music
Savannah Slaby – Vocal Music

GSA students participate in a three-week program located at Transylvania University in Lexington during which the rising juniors and seniors are offered in-depth instruction in one of nine areas: architecture, creative writing, dance, drama, instrumental music, musical theatre, new media, visual art or vocal music. The student artists are immersed in a rigorous schedule of daily seminars, master-classes, lectures, hands-on workshops and field trips.
