Students selected to Governor's Honors

A total of 23 students from Fayette’s five high schools are finalists for the 2010 Governor’s Honors Program. The six-week summer study program in Valdosta provides intellectually gifted and artistically talented high school students challenging and enriching educational opportunities not usually available during the regular school year. Activities are designed to provide each participant with opportunities to acquire the skills, knowledge and attitudes to become independent, life-long learners.

The selection process is lengthy and begins in the fall when teachers from each high school nominate students for outstanding performance in particular areas of study. The nominated students advance to county-level interviews where the finalists for state consideration are selected.

County finalists interview with state officials to determine who will participate in the summer study program. Thousands of students from around the state compete for the coveted spots each year.

The following students have been selected to participate in the 2010 program:

Fayette County High – Dayna Gomes (Music/French Horn), Stephanie Jennings (Music/French Horn), Sara Palmer (Music/Trombone), Sarika Reddy (Mathematics), and Rose Wilmot (Music/Saxophone).

McIntosh High – Karen Anderson (Mathematics), Brady Brettin (Mathematics), Mary Cook (French), Yuta Inaba (Mathematics), Han Sol Kwon (Music/Piano), Sarah Manley (Music/Trombone), Oliver McGuire (Communicative Arts), Ben Monroe (Physics), Torrie Richardson (Music/Bassoon), and Melissa Woodbridge (Visual Arts).

Sandy Creek High – Poonim Daya (Mathematics).

Starr’s Mill High – Na Young Kim (Visual Arts), Lindsay Quandt (German), and Stephanie Tan (Music/Piano).

Whitewater High – Ashley Allen (Theatre), Brian Dong (Mathematics), and Jay Newsome, II (Music/Saxophone).
