WCPS Students to Attend Governor’s School
Two Wayne County Public Schools (WCPS) high school juniors have been invited to attend the 2019 Governor’s School of North Carolina session this summer. Spring Creek High’s Eboni Brown and Wayne School of Engineering’s Grace Boros were both recognized Monday evening by the Wayne County Board of Education for this achievement.
Governor’s School is the oldest statewide summer residential program for academically and intellectually gifted high school students in the nation. The program, which is open to rising seniors only, with exceptions made for rising juniors in the visual/performing arts, is located on two campuses. Governor’s School West, established in 1963, traditionally has been held at Salem College in Winston Salem, but has been moved to High Point University for the 2019 session to accommodate scheduled construction and renovation projects at the college. Governor’s School East, established in 1978, is located at Meredith College in Raleigh.
The 2019 session will run from June 16 – July 24. These two WCPS students will be among 600 academically and intellectually gifted students to attend the Governor’s School program. Ms. Brown will attend Governor’s School East in the area of English. Ms. Boros will attend Governor’s School West in the area of Visual Arts.
