Junior Grace Orsborne named to Governor’s Scholar Program

We want to extend a very heartfelt congratulations to junior Grace Orsborne for her acceptance into the Governor’s Scholar Program.The Governor’s Scholars Program is a summer residential program for outstanding high school students in Kentucky who are rising seniors. The Program originated in 1983 as a result of Kentucky leaders’ concern that the state’s “best and brightest” were leaving the Commonwealth to pursue educational and career opportunities elsewhere without fully understanding the potential of their talents at home.

The Program’s mission is to enhance Kentucky’s next generation of civic and economic leaders.

In order to participate in the Program, students must be nominated by their high schools and then compete on a state-wide level. Selection for the program is highly competitive, with an application process similar to that of prestigious colleges and universities. In order to get accepted, prospective juniors must have high academic achievement, including standardized test scores, and be highly active in their school and community. The 1000 seniors that are selected yearly are eligible to receive scholarships to any in-state public university upon completing the program.

Congratulations to Grace for this immense honor. We know you’ll do great!
