The Governor's Scholar Program is a stimulating, five-week, residential summer program for outstanding Kentucky students completing their junior year in high school. Established in 1983, the program provides academic and personal growth in a challenging, non-traditional experience that balances a strong liberal arts with a full co-curricular and residential life experience.
Amberleigh was one of eight students selected from Johnson Central High School to participate in this summer's Governor Scholars program. The seven other students from Johnson Central are: Alison Dye, Beth Slone, Matt Spencer, Jared McCool, Jared Willis, Bobby Cantrell, and Tom Brown.
"The youth of today will be the leaders of tomorrow." Congratulations to these fine students.
