Mains, Sturtevant, and Yang Selected to Attend the Governor's Honors Program
April 3, 2019
The College Advising office is pleased to announce that Lindsey Mains (’20), Tyler Sturtevant (’20), and Andy Yang (’20) have been invited to study in the prestigious Georgia Governor’s Honors Program (GHP) at Berry College in Rome this June and July. The Governor’s Honors Program is significantly different from the typical high school program as it provides students with academic, cultural, and social enrichments, which will enable them “to become the next generation of global critical thinkers, innovators, and leaders.” Wesleyan was able to nominate five students to the program, and after a rigorous application and interview process, three of them were ultimately selected. GHP offers twelve majors that are characterized as either academic majors or performing arts majors. This summer, Lindsey will focus her study on communicative arts, Tyler on theatre, and Andy on mathematics.
The Governor’s Honors Program is fully funded by the state with no cost to attendees beyond travel. Over 3,000 students were nominated to the state level competition and over 1,600 participated in this year’s state interview and/or audition process with approximately 650 ultimately chosen to attend, which represents one-fourth of 1% of eligible sophomores and juniors in the state.
Please join us in congratulating Lindsey, Tyler, Andy, and their families for this outstanding opportunity.
