Five West Jessamine High School students have been selected as Kentucky Governor’s Scholars, an immersive five-week college preparatory program. Students live on one of three college campuses in Kentucky and participate in small group seminars, volunteer work and more.
Monica Alden, Nicole Fielder, Emerson James, Shawn Murphy and Jesse Seales are West Jessamine’s five Governor’s Scholars. For some, GSP will be an opportunity to “network with future leaders,” as Fielder, who hopes to attend Vanderbilt University next fall, said. Others, like Murphy, will take this opportunity to see firsthand what college is like.
Rising juniors who are interested in the Governor’s Scholars Program (GSP) should contact the guidance office this coming fall for application and selection information.
