Fifteen students from Christian County have been selected for the Governor’s Scholars Program, a selective summer residential program for rising high school seniors in Kentucky.
Chosen from Hopkinsville High School were Jada Poindexter, Mary Baker, Silas Jackson, Grasen Givens, Abigail Moss, Allison Wood and William Knight, said Christian County Public Schools spokesman John Rittenhouse.
Christian County High School will send four students — Luke Luttrull, Jacob Stewart, Autumn Bell and David Woods.
UHA Head of School Beth Unfried said four students from the private school were selected. They are Haiden Hauret, Lauren Sisk, Sam Cotthoff and Walter Kunnman.
Established in 1983, the Governor’s Scholars Program has a mission to broaden Kentucky’s next generation of civic and economic leaders.
This summer the scholars will go to one of three colleges in Kentucky — Bellarmine University, in Louisville, Centre College, in Danville, and Morehead State University at Morehead.
