2018 Governor's Scholars from GCHS Three GCHS juniors selected as Governor's Scholars
Jonathan Nelson, Shannnon McClung and Josh Embry have been chosen as Kentucky Governor's Scholars for this summer's program. The Governor’s Scholars Program 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 order to participate in the Program, students must be nominated by their high schools and then compete on a state-wide level. Congratulations!
