Governor's Honors Program
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 "winner";
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.
For questions about GHP, call Mrs. Taaffe at 770-568-6233,
Coordinators for GHP are:
