Five Richmond Hill High School students were recently selected for the Georgia Governor’s Honors Program, a residential summer program for gifted and talented rising juniors and seniors.
Richmond Hill High School winners include:
• Ryan Wiebold, finalist-science
• James Shin, finalist-math
• Jackson Martin, finalist-communicative arts
• Savannah Flanagan, alternate-math
• Cecilia Mateo, alternate-science
The program offers instruction that is significantly different from the typical high school classroom and is designed to provide students with academic, cultural and social enrichment necessary to become the next generation of global critical thinkers, innovators and leaders.
GHP is held in mid-summer (mid-June to mid-July) as a residential educational experience on a college or university campus. Students attend classes in the mornings and afternoons in specific areas of study, and they participate in a wide variety of social and instructional opportunities every evening.
Meals and rooms are provided by the program with the only required and expected costs to the students being travel expenses to and from the interviews, a few basic supplies for classes and dorm rooms, and spending money as desired during the program.
