The Governor’s Honors Program is a four-week summer program designed to provide intellectually gifted and artistically talented high school students challenging and enriching educational opportunities not usually available during the regular school year. It is fully-funded by the Georgia General Assembly and operates at no cost to the participant.
Wesley is delighted to announce that five of our alumni – Isaiah Anderson, Bryce Johnson, David Lee, Ari Renai (pictured L to R below), and Emilia Gustafson (not pictured) – have been selected to participate. Classmates since kindergarten, they are all in their junior year of high school. They are leaders in a variety of activities in their school as well as National Honor Society members. As rising six graders in 2013, all four attended Wesley’s inaugural trip to Nanjing Unversity in China for a full immersion Mandarin.
According to the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement, the state-level process for the Governor’s Honor Program was very competitive this year. Of the 3,180 nominees, approximately 21% were invited to attend. The students selected to attend GHP demonstrate superior skills in the area of their nomination. We are so proud of these former Wesley students!
