MCHS Announces Prestigious Summer Programs and Students

marshall county school 300MARSHALL COUNTY, Ky. (4/21/14) — Marshall County Board of Education is proud to announce accepted students into three prestigious summer programs, Governor's Scholars Program, Commonwealth Honors Academy and Kentucky Center Governor's School for the Arts.

2014 Kentucky State Governor’s Scholars Program

Kentucky State Governor’s Scholars Program. Governor’s Scholars are chosen from a pool of applicants representing every public and private secondary school in the Commonwealth, as well as home schools. In order to succeed in the GSP’s highly competitive selection process, a student must excel both inside and outside of the classroom, demonstrating the commitments of intellectual growth, community service, and effective leadership that characterize the Commonwealths future civic and economic leaders.

The Governor’s Scholars Program is a stimulating, five-week, residential summer program for outstanding Kentucky students completing their junior in high school. Every student selected to be a Governor’s Scholar attends the Program entirely without charge. Nearly every college and university in Kentucky offers generous scholarships to GSP alumni.

Established in 1983, the program provides academic and personal growth through the balance of a strong liberal arts program with a full co-curricular and residential life experience. The students selected from Marshall County High School are; Cole Barnard, Robert Blankenship, Matthew Lawson, Rachel Northcutt, Adam Padgett, Savana Peal, Samantha Ruley, Stephanie Russell, Ellie Steele, Tyler Sutherland, Skyler VanMeter, Madison Vaughn and Caroline Wells.

2014 Commonwealth Honors Academy

CHA Scholars are chosen from a pool of applicants representing high school juniors throughout Kentucky as well as the Murray State University out-of-state service region. All students applying for the Commonwealth Honors Academy should have a 3.5 GPA (on a 4-point scale) and 25 Composite ACT (or the equivalent PSAT, SAT or PLAN score).

CHA is an exciting, challenging three-week academic, social and personal growth program for outstanding high school students who have completed their junior year. Upon completion of the Academy, students will: receive six hours of university credit, have the opportunity to take three hours of tuition-free university courses at Murray State University during the subsequent fall and spring semesters and be awarded a four-year, $2,000-per-year housing scholarship to attend Murray State University

The Academy differs from the traditional high school in its approach to learning and in the creation of a living learning community. CHA offers students a chance to know and make friends with other enthusiastic, energetic students with high intellectual capacities. The interaction of students with different backgrounds is one of the most valuable aspects of the academy.

The Academy provides students, faculty and staff with an opportunity to share the joy and discovery of learning and to exchange ideas in a warm community atmosphere. Exceptional speakers, performers, films, interesting field trips, special events and recreational experiences offer students an array of stimulating activities that provide fun and enjoyment, as well as learning opportunities.

The students selected from Marshall County High School are: Christopher Senf and Caroline Wells.

Every summer for the past twenty-seven years, GSA and their faculty of professional artist/educators have guided over two hundred of Kentucky’s finest young artists through three weeks of incredibly intense and incredibly fun arts instruction (since 2014, on the campus of Centre College in Danville).
