Five students from Owensboro Catholic Schools, Diocese of Owensboro district, were accepted into the 2020 Governor's Scholars Program.
Those students are Emma Silvert, the daughter of Amy and Madison Silvert; Clayton Lewis, the son of Carl and Kim Lewis; Max Kurtz, the son of John and Chrissy Kurtz; Ethan Higdon, the son of Scott and Jennifer Higdon; and Joseph Fusco, the son of Anthony and Lydia Fusco.
The Governor’s Scholars Program traditionally is a five-week, residential summer program for Kentucky’s most outstanding students as they complete their junior year of high school. This program provides academic and leadership growth in a challenging, non-traditional experience that balances a strong liberal arts program with a full co-curricular and residential life environment.
Plans for the 2020 program are currently proceeding as normal but may be modified in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the GSP website.
