Apr 01 2021
Recently, five Carroll County high school students were selected as Finalists for Georgia's Governor's Honors program (GHP). From Central High School, both Charlee Causey and Alexa Wagner were chosen in the field of Agricultural Research, Biotechnology, and Science. Also from Central High School, William Smith was selected in the field of Vocal Music.
From Temple High School, Sarah Shivers was chosen as a Finalist in the field of Mathematics, and Emma Guthire from Villa Rica High School was selected in the field of Visual Arts.
"We are so proud of our students! The GHP process is very lengthy and requires a great deal of persistence and attention to detail on the part of those who were nominated. Our students were well-prepared for the final interviews, and all of their hard work certainly paid off," stated Dr. Travis Thomas, Director of High Schools for Carroll County.
GHP is a residential summer program on the campus of Berry College for gifted and talented rising junior and senior high school students. The program offers instruction that is significantly different from the typical high school classroom, designed to provide students with academic, cultural, and social enrichment necessary to become the next generation of global critical thinkers, innovators, and leaders. Georgia's GHP is the second oldest program of this type in the United States.
