     Alexis Vladescu and Isabella Halaby (pictured L-R) of Statesboro High School will attend the state’s premier residential learning program for gifted and talented students June 19 through July 16. Vladescu was selected for Science with a concentration in Chemistry and Halaby for Mathematics.
     Over 3,200 students from across the state were nominated by their high schools to the state level competition. Nearly 1,400 of them were then selected to participate in this year’s state interview and audition process for the chance to become a program finalist to attend the program.
     The Georgia Governor’s Honors Program (GHP) will bring together rising juniors and seniors to offer them instruction that is significantly different from their typical high school classroom. It is designed to provide academic, cultural, and social enrichment to encourage our next generation of global critical thinkers, innovators, and leaders. While on the Berry College campus GHP finalists will attend classes in the mornings and afternoons in specific areas of study, and then participate in a wide variety of social and instructional opportunities each evening.  GHP offers these specific areas of study in which a student may be nominated and some of the areas have multiple concentrations: Agricultural Research, Biotechnology, and Science; Communicative Arts; Science; Dance; Social Studies; Engineering; Theatre Performance; Mathematics; Visual Arts; Music; and World Languages.
