Congratulations to Dakota Davis, Nicholas Frizzell, and Caroline Whitt on being accepted into the Governor's Scholar Program. The Program’s mission is to enhance Kentucky’s next generation of civic and economic leaders.
In order to participate in the Program, students must compete on a state-wide level. Selection for the program is highly competitive, with an application process similar to that of prestigious colleges and universities. In addition to an academic profile that includes difficulty of course load, GPA, and at least one standardized test score, the application requires an outline of all extracurricular activities, a history of volunteer service, and a list of job positions held. A Teacher recommendation which includes both a quantitative evaluation and qualitative descriptions of the student’s performance and potential; as well as a Community Recommendation which shows how a student performs in a community setting beyond the high school are also required. The final component of the application is an original writing entry.
Bath County is very proud of these students and we look forward to following their success.
