Apr 13, 2016 | Impact, Upper School News

The Georgia Governor’s Honors Program (GHP) is a residential summer program for gifted and talented high school students who will be rising juniors and seniors during the summer of 2016.  This program offers instruction that is significantly different from the typical high school classroom and is designed to provide students with academic, cultural, and social enrichment necessary to become the next generation of global critical thinkers, innovators, and leaders.

This past fall, five MVPS Upper School students were nominated by faculty: 

Engineering: Mechanical Engineering/Mechatronics … Emily Moseley
Music Brass: French Horn … Steven Butz
Communicative Arts … Grace Colley
Social Studies … Emmy Schaeffer
Theater … Anya Roman
Upon demonstrating high aptitude in their respective areas, and participating in state-level interviews, juniors Emily Moseley and Emmy Schaeffer were selected to participate in this state-wide program.

GHP is held in mid-summer as a residential educational experience on a college or university campus. Students will attend classes in the mornings and afternoons in specific areas of study, and participate in a wide variety of social and instructional opportunities every evening.

Congratulations Emily and Emmy!
