In November, Emanuel County Institute named five individuals who would represent the school in the Governor’s Honors Program. Three of those five have made it to semifinal round of consideration: Sarah Catherine Kraus, Landon Canady, and Lawson Mercer.
As semifinalists, these students will be interviewed at Berry College later this month for an opportunity to attend the program this summer.
Kraus was selected in the field of Visual Arts, Canady in Communicative Arts, and Mercer in Mathematics.
The Georgia Governor’s Honors Program (GHP) is a residential summer program for gifted and talented high school students who are rising juniors and seniors during the program. The program offers instruction that is significantly different from the typical high school classroom. It is designed to provide students with academic, cultural, and social enrichment necessary to become the next generation of global critical thinkers, innovators, and leaders.
Others who represented ECI were Martha Woodward (Physical Science) and Shana Wilkerson (Agriculture Research). They were considered at the county level of competition.
