Graves High’s Clifford to benefit from Commonwealth Honors Academy as Murray State University student
ADDED BENEFITS FROM MSU’S CHA – Graves County High School senior Rachel Clifford recently was awarded a Certificate of Recognition from the Commonwealth Honors Academy at a reunion of academy scholars held at Murray State University. Pictured with her are Dr. Warren Edminster, academic dean of the academy, and Dr. Randy Dunn, president of MSU. Clifford and 88 other students participated in the academy at MSU June 4-26. During the three weeks, academy scholars completed two college-level courses, attended multiple lectures, concerts, and orientations, and participated in a tri-weekly personal development seminar.
As a successful academy graduate, Clifford earned six hours of academic credit, a $2,000 per year MSU housing scholarship, and the option to take six additional hours of academic credit at MSU tuition free. The mission of CHA, currently in its tenth year, is “to challenge, educate, enlighten, and nurture the next generation of academic, civic, and business leaders in the region.” To qualify, students must earn a 3.5/4.0 grade point average and an ACT score of 25 (or equivalent SAT, PSAT, or PLAN scores).
