The Cobb County School District has the highest number of Governor’s Honors Program student finalists in the state. Ninety-seven students from 15 Cobb County High Schools have been selected by the state to participate in the 2015 Governor’s Honors Program.
For four weeks during the summer, this select group of students will participate in challenging and enriching educational experiences at Valdosta State University in Math, Communicative Arts, Science, Social Studies, Fine Arts, and Technology. Cobb’s list of student finalists offers 15 more finalists than last year, and 11 more finalists than any previous year.
More than 3,000 students statewide, representing 1% of all sophomores and juniors in public, private, and home schools, were nominated last fall. In January, the state selected approximately 2,000 semi-finalists who were then invited to attended state-level interviews in January and February where panels of judges determined the 679 finalists. Congratulations to our finalists!
