Swainsboro High School is proud to announce that Josie Peebles has been named a finalist for the Georgia Governor’s Honors Program in the area of Communicative Arts.
More than 3,200 students were nominated to the state level competition, and nearly 1,600 of those students participated in this year’s state interview/audition process. Peebles was one of the few from the interview process chosen to participate in the program.
The Governor’s Honors Program is a residential summer program for gifted and talented high school students who will be rising juniors and seniors during the program. The program offers instruction that is significantly different from the typical high school classroom and that is designed to provide students with academic, cultural, and social enrichment necessary to become the next generation of global critical thinkers, innovators, and leaders.
Peebles will spend her summer on a college or university campus. There, she will attend classes in the mornings and afternoons in specific areas of study and will participate in a wide variety of social and instructional opportunities every evening.
