Highlands High School (HHS) is honored to announce the students who have been accepted into Governor’s summer programs.

HHS juniors accepted into the Governor’s Scholar Program (GSP) are:
·         Savannah Brady
·         Bonny Lemma
·         Griffin Leighty
·         Elizabeth Juengling (Alternate)
·         Natalie Wehrle (Alternate)

GSP is a six week summer residential program for outstanding high school students in Kentucky who are rising seniors. 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, GPA, 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 junior Libby Birkley was accepted into the Governor’s School for the Arts (GSA) program for Visual Art.

GSA students participate in a three (3) week program located at Centre College in Danville 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.
