2021 GHP Finalists


Congratulations to the following JCHS Band students for being selected to 2021 GHP Program in Music Christopher Lee – Woodwind: Oboe (Last Year Carryover) Jeongyun (Lauren) Choi - Woodwind: Clarinet (Alternate) What is GHP? The Georgia Governor’s Honors Program (GHP) is a four-week summer residential instructional program designed to provide intellectually gifted and artistically talented high school students challenging and enriching educational opportunities not usually available during the regular school year. Activities are designed to provide each participant with opportunities to acquire the skills, knowledge and attitudes to become independent, lifelong learners. Who can participate? Rising juniors and seniors in Georgia’s public, private, and home schools may be nominated by their teachers. Students are nominated in a specific instructional area in which their abilities, aptitudes and interest lie. Each school system or private school is assigned a nomination quota based on the average daily attendance of its 10th and 11th grades. Transcripts of grades and records, nomination forms, endorsements and other pertinent information are submitted to substantiate the nominations. Local nominees are then sent to state-wide screening interviews/auditions. The written evidence and data gathered in the student interview/audition are used to evaluate nominees and select finalists. Congrats to both of our students for being selected!
