Those selected include: Will Blake, Jaxon Hibbard, Grace Mattingly, Miranda Buckler, Karly Spalding, Emily Mattingly, Saya Kato, Jacklyn Farmer, and Gracyn Mattingly.

The students, all current juniors, were selected following a rigorous and competitive application process. Students will attend GSP at one of three college campuses: Centre College, Morehead St. University, or Murray St. University.
