Clark Adams, Patsy Banister, Alexandra Carr and X’Zashea Mayes will take part in the five-week residential summer program for outstanding Kentucky students.
“We are pleased that four of our outstanding juniors have been chosen to participate in the Governor’s Scholars Program this summer,” said Travis Hamby, superintendent of Trigg County Public Schools. “We are confident that they will greatly benefit from their experience and represent Trigg County well.”
The Governor’s Scholars Program includes a highly competitive application process. Students apply based upon academic merit, extracurricular activities, volunteer service and an original essay. The number of students that can be nominated for each school is based upon junior class enrollment. Trigg County High School was able to nominate six students for the 2013 program.
“We had 13 juniors apply for the Governor’s Scholars Program this year, so it was a very competitive process locally,” said Shannon Burcham, Trigg County High School principal.
