Cleveland County Schools’ students Jennifer Allen, Tanna Curry, Dylan Ervin, Ryan Eusebio, Be’ary Ford, Tyler Helms, Samuel Herring, Andi Morgan, Keri Price, Michael Rehnberg, Liana Stachowicz, Reginald Ward, Jaida Wesson, and Savannah Wilson will now enter the state level selection process for Governor’s School this coming summer. These students were among a pool of Cleveland County students interviewed by a local selection committee to earn the opportunity to advance to the state level of the selection process.

The students hope to be selected to attend the nation’s oldest statewide residential program for those academically or intellectually gifted. Attending students will be submerged into a five and one-half week summer residency to study one of 10 curriculum areas: art, choral music, dance, English, foreign language (French and Spanish), instrumental music, mathematics, natural science, social science and theater. The curriculum focuses on the exploration of the most recent ideas and concepts in each discipline and does not involve credit, tests or grades.
