Published on: 3/29/2022

Over 3200 students were nominated to the state level Governor's Honors Program competition this year and just over 1400 participated in the interview/audition process. Three SCCPSS students have been chosen as finalists, plus two as alternates.

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 program. 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.

The SCCPSS finalists and their area of study are:

Kate Bossler, Science, Islands High School

Michael Wood, Science, Islands High School

Maisra Ali, Social Studies, Savannah Early College High School. 

Two Savannah Arts Academy students have been chosen as Alternates – Sharon Lee, Music Strings: violin; and Ansley McKee, Music Voice: Treble.

Each year, thousands of nominations are received from each of the twelve economic development regions in Georgia. Finalists progressed through several rounds of intensive competition, including interviews and performances, to be named as finalists for the 2022 Governor's Honors Program. The 2022 Governor's Honors Program is scheduled for June 19 to July 16 at Berry College.
