Mayor Kemp commented, “We want to encourage students to consider their future educational options as early as possible, so we’ve developed the Mayor’s Scholars program criteria to mirror that of the Rotary Scholars Program in hopes that students will consider that tremendous opportunity.”
To be named a Mayor’s Scholar, students must have a 2.5 GPA, maintain a 95% attendance rate, and attend a Christian County Public Schools middle school. Eligible students submitting an essay outlining their future education and career goals were named Mayor’s Scholars last week and are invited to attend a day-long field trip to Murray State University main campus on March 28. Fifty-nine scholars were named this year.
