Peach County High students nominated for Governor’s Honors

January 2, 2013 

Peach County High School has nominated five students for Governor’s Honors, a summer enrichment program held at Valdosta State University for gifted high school juniors and seniors.

During the four-week program, students study a major that they are nominated for as well as a topic of their choosing. The state funds the program, so there is no charge for students to attend, according to a news release.

Peach County High’s nominees, and their majors, are: Colton Cason, math; Christopher Poole, math; Corajean Lackman, social studies; Drenay Everett, Spanish; and Jessica Mantooth, theater.

The students will interview for the program at the state level in January and February.

Governor’s Honors “is such a competitive program that even being nominated is an accomplishment. I congratulate the students of Peach County High School and look forward to meeting them and their parents at the interviews,” Dale Lyles, director of the program, said in the release.
