Congratulations to MPCS junior K. Codrington on his selection as a finalist and invited to participate in the 2022 Governor’s Honors Program as a dance major. By being selected as a finalist, he represents the top quartile of the top percentile of the eligible student peer group in the state. He will study in his dance major area six days per week, four hours per day, and will declare a minor area of study in addition to dance. To be accepted as a GHP participant is significant, carrying great weight on college applications.
By being named as 2022 GHP finalists, students will have the opportunity to live on the campus of Berry College for four weeks with approximately 650 other high-achieving students from across the state to study in their subject area, interact with students in their peer group, and get a preview of what college life is like. Students will study six days per week in their major area and five days per week in a minor area that they declare once on campus. Participation is free for all students, completely funded by the Georgia Legislature.
The Georgia Governor's Honors Program has a rich and meaningful history: it was established in 1964, is the longest-running and largest program of its kind in the nation, and is the only program in the country that is completely funded by the state legislature at no cost to participants. Past Georgia GHP participants are Academy Award winner Holly Hunter (The Piano), TV star Wayne Knight (Newman on Seinfeld), politicians, and many successful physicians, entrepreneurs, and the like.
