On June 19th through July 21st Claire Johnson, Dillon Jones, Olivia Ellis, James Saylor, Alex Lester, and  Katie Halsey traveled to different colleges around the state of Kentucky to attend the prestigious Governor’s Scholar Program and the Governor’s School for the Arts. 

Olivia Ellis, a JCHS senior, said the experience was the best of both worlds. “ The atmosphere was laid back but also very studious.” Ellis  stayed five weeks at Centre College where she majored in Historical Analysis. 

Katie Halsey, a senior, attended GSP  at Bellarmine, and her  major was astronomy. Halsey believes the  GSP experience was “better than any high school environment imaginable, those unforgettable 5 weeks helped to shape me into the person I hope to be for the rest of my life.”

Senior Dillon Jones also went to Centre College for GSP 

but majored in Environmental and Biological  Issues. Jones’s experience was also positive, and he was especially thrilled at the prospect of the scholarship offers GSP brings. “ The feeling of equality  from the students was nice as was knowing I would get a free scholarship!”

Senior Alex Lester traveled to the west end of the state and attended GSP at Murray State University. With a  major in Journalism, Lester admits that “This summer  was the best summer of my life.”

Senior James Saylor attended GSP at Centre and studied Philosophy. Saylor agrees that GSP was an amazing experience. "GSP was life changing. It was the best thing that could have happened to me, and my amazing five weeks there will not be forgotten."

Junior Claire Johnson was the only JCHS student to attend the Governor’s School for the Arts at Transylvania University. Johnson said her experience was “ life changing to say the least. To be surrounded by so many young artistic minds was inspiring. It challenged all of our artistic abilities to their fullest potential. You become part of an Art Community when you enter GSA, and I am so fortunate to have had this experience.”
