Magnolia High School junior, EmmiGrace Miller, has been selected to attend the 41st Annual Arkansas Governor’s School. The program will be held on the campus of Arkansas Tech University from July 5-August 1, 2020. EmmiGrace is the daughter of Amy and Brett Miller.
The Arkansas Governor’s School is a four-week summer residential program for upcoming high school seniors who are residents of the state of Arkansas. The program is funded by the Arkansas State Legislature as a portion of the biennial appropriation for Gifted and Talented Programs through the State Department of Education. State funds provide tuition, room, board, and instructional materials for each student who attends the four-week program on the site of a residential college campus, sponsored by the State. The Arkansas Governor’s School is a non-credit program that seeks to create a unique experience for a select group of Arkansas’ best students—the potential leaders of the 21st century. Both inside and outside the classrooms, AGS provides highly motivated, creative students with an intellectual atmosphere impossible to sustain in ordinary academic settings. The excitement of intellectual and artistic pursuits and the expectation of significant conceptual gains permeate all aspects of the participants’ lives for the full four weeks.
Students are selected based on their special aptitudes in one of nine fields, Choral Music, Cybersecurity, Drama, English/Language Arts, Instrumental Music, Mathematics, Natural Science, Social Science, and Visual Arts.
EmmiGrace applied and was selected for the Instrumental Music content area.
