meeting for those interested in GHP 2006
Tuesday, September 6 at 3:30 pm (in the auditorium)
Any students who wants to compete MUST attend this meeting, as vital
information will be disseminated. The deadline for
getting a teacher nomination will be just a few days following
that meeting, so missing the meeting may very well eliminate a
student from the competition.
We will have several past GHP student finalists there who can
give information about the program and tell about their summer
experience. The meeting will last about an hour.
The prestigious Governor's Honors Program (GHP) is
available to intellectually gifted and talented sophomores and juniors.
Students go through an intensive interview process at the school,
county, and state levels. Fewer than 800 students from across
Georgia become GHP "winners"; these students are rewarded with
an all-expense-paid six week study program under the auspices of the
State Department of Education, held on the campus of Valdosta State
University. Wheeler finalists who have attended the program
enthusiastically maintain that it is an incredible experience, both
intellectually and socially.
Parents/Students who want more
information about the Governor's Honors Program can go online to
(Valdosta State University is the site for the summer program.)
Click on the menu "Select Links" in the upper left,
and then click on Governor's Honors (VSU). This site
answers all questions about GHP and what is involved in the
six-week summer experience.
