Carroll County High School Students Selected as Governor's Honors Program Finalists

Apr 18 2019

Two Villa Rica High School students were recently selected as Finalists for Georgia's Governor's Honors Program (GHP). Andruw Martin was selected as a Finalist in the field of Communicative Arts, and Mary Armstrong was chosen as a Finalist in the field of Dance. Additionally, a Central High School student was selected as an Alternate for GHP. Kenji Trumble was chosen as an Alternate in the field of Music. Students were nominated from their respective high schools for GHP and completed a rigorous application and interview process to be chosen to participate at the state level.  

GHP is a residential summer program on the campus of Berry College for gifted and talented rising junior and senior high school students. The program offers instruction that is significantly different from the typical high school classroom, and that is designed to provide students with academic, cultural, and social enrichment necessary to become the next generation of global critical thinkers, innovators, and leaders. Georgia's GHP program is the second oldest program of this type in the United States.
