Congratulations to Jenna Moore for being named a 2020 Kentucky Governor Scholar and to Kathryn Stahr for being named an alternate!
The Governor’s Scholars Program is a 5 week, residential summer program for outstanding Kentucky students completing their junior year of high school. GSP’s mission is to enhance Kentucky’s next generation of civic and economic leaders. Selection for the program is highly competitive, with an application process similar to that of prestigious college and universities. 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. Students who are
selected for the program will receive a full-paid tuition scholarship for four
years if the students have the ACT score and GPA required by the college they
choose to attend.

Congratulations to Sophomore Emma Harris for being admitted into Gatton Academy!
Each year, The Gatton Academy admits approximately 95 Kentucky sophomores based on standardized test scores, their GPA, responses to essay questions, personal interviews, extracurricular activities and recommendations. The goal of The Gatton Academy is to enable Kentucky’s exceptional young scientists and mathematicians to learn in an environment that offers advanced educational opportunities, preparing them for leadership roles in Kentucky. Instead of
spending their junior and senior years in traditional high schools, students
enroll in The Gatton Academy and live in a uniquely dedicated Gatton Academy
residence hall. Taking courses offered by WKU, their classmates are fellow
Gatton Academy students and WKU undergraduate students. At the end of two
years, Gatton Academy students will have earned between sixty and seventy-two college
credit hours in addition to completing high school.
