All six nominees from Edmonson County have been selected as Governor's Scholars. School officials say this is the first time all nominees from ECHS have been selected.
“We are so thrilled that all six of our students were accepted into the Governor’s Scholar Program," said ECHS Counselor Nikki Culbreth. "This is a huge accomplishment for our kids and our school. We could not be more proud of this group of students.”
Students named are: Hallie Cassady, Macy Cassady, Meredith Hennion, Derick Jaggers, Catherine Vincent, and Morgan Vincent.
ECHS Principal Jonathan Williams said the process to be named a Governor's Scholar is highly competitive with rigorous application procedures.
"ECHS getting six out of six students in the program is almost unheard of, and as I’ve repeatedly said, we have some of the finest students, families, and educators right here in Edmonson County and I’m looking forward to more wins like this for our kids," he said. " If we can continue to focus on safety, achievement and opportunity here, doors will continue to open. Thank you to everyone that contributed in any way to helping guide these young people through this process, because it was a total team effort.”
