  • Six local students reflect on their GSP and GSA experiences

    Over the summer, five Marion County High School students participated in the Governor’s Scholars Program, and one student took part in the Governer’s School for the Arts.
    GSP started in 1983 because Kentucky leaders wanted to help keep the state’s "best and brightest" to pursue educational and career opportunities in the Commonwealth. Students selected for the program attend without charge. GSP is supported through a partnership between the Office of the Governor, the Kentucky State Legislature, and private enterprise.

    “My brother remembered to close the door,” Irvin replied.
    “Good,” Simpson said.
    Irvin carefully sounded out the words as she read a story about a girl named Camilla and her family. When she had trouble with a name or a new word, Simpson was there to offer guidance.
