Graves County High School students qualify for summer 2013 Kentucky Governor’s Scholars Program
LARGE CONTINGENT – Graves County High School has fielded a record number of participants from the Jackson Purchase high school in the summer 2013 edition of the Kentucky Governor’s Scholars Program. Altogether, nine GCHS students will experience five weeks of residential university life on college campuses across the Commonwealth. The aim of the program is to help outstanding students see what is possible in postsecondary education and get a glimpse of that life in the summer prior to their senior year of high school. Pictured here, from left, are (front row) Hunter Jones, Eric Vogt, Garrett Bell, (middle row) Lindsey Thompson, Melissa Shankle, Lillie Garner, (back row) Kelby Miller, Mitul Ahmed, and Mitchell McClure.
