Recently, three Central High School students were selected as Finalists for Georgia's Governor's Honors Program (GHP). Charlee Causey and Gilverto Galvan were both chosen as Finalists in the field of Agricultural  Research, Biotechnology, and Science. Samantha Whritenour was selected as a Finalist in the field of Visual Arts. 

Additionally, two Villa Rica High School students were selected as Alternates -Owen Haynes in Music and Emmanuel Ramos in Visual Arts.

Students were nominated from their respected high schools for the GHP and then interviewed at the district level. Students who were nominated from the district level then completed a state application. Finalists and alternates were chosen from their state applications and interviews at the state level. 

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, and that is 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 program is the second oldest program of this type in the United States.
