Seven Marion County High School juniors have been selected to advance to the next round of the Governor’s Scholars Program’s application process. They are: Katie Beth Brady, Zachary Brady, Seth Caldwell, Zachary Essex, Josie Followell, Delaney Mattingly, and Samuel Thompson.
“We had a very strong pool of applicants this year,” MCPS Gifted and Talented teacher Laurie Followell said. Throughout the year, Followell worked with students on completing and revising their applications. “All of the students spent a great deal of time working on their applications. They would work at home, during their lunch periods, or if they had extra time in the NextGen lab. So, we had a lot of strong applications due to a lot of hard work.“
