NKU gathers high school scholars
By Scott Wartman
HIGHLAND HEIGHTS Northern Kentucky University is one of three Kentucky colleges that will host the best high school students during this year's Governor's Scholars program.
About 1,000 high school students from 118 of Kentucky's 120 counties are attending the highly competitive program at NKU, Centre College in Danville and Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond.
About 1,600 students applied for the five-week educational program, and a statewide selection committee chose the final 1,000 based on academic records, test scores, teacher recommendations, extracurricular activities and essays. Students apply in their junior year and submit applications to their local school board.
Students in the program live on campus and attend three classes daily: one in a focus area of their choice such as English, mathematics or science; another general studies class focused on hands-on community service; and a seminar class discussing issues affecting students.
The Governor's Scholars program introduces students to variety of people and ideas, said Kent Juett, campus director at NKU.
They get to hear viewpoints from people of all classes and areas of Kentucky, he said.
