Two other GCHS students received certificates recognizing their nominations. Pictured, from left, front row, are Robert Trent, for community service, and Brett Errickson, for academics. Elliott, Lear, and Roach will receive their awards at the November state conference in Louisville.
The all-expenses-paid trip includes a night at the Galt House, dinner out with all the winners and their families, and a tour of the city. Each also advances to national competition. The Council for Exceptional Children is an international community of professionals who are the voice and vision of special and gifted education. CEC's mission is to improve, through excellence and advocacy, the education and quality of life for children and youth with exceptionalities and to enhance the engagement of their families. “We are so proud of all of our students’ achievements,” said teacher Miranda Reed. Fellow teacher Lori Emerson added, “Graves County High School definitely is well-represented!”
