Several south Charlotte students were recently selected to participate in the North Carolina Governor’s School this summer.
The five-week program, running from June 17 to July 21, integrates academic disciplines, the arts and unique courses. It’s the oldest statewide summer residential program for academically gifted high school students in the nation. Governor’s School does not involve credit, tests or grades, but focuses on the exploration of recent ideas and concepts in different disciplines.
Five Charlotte Latin students were selected to participate: David Farrow will attend for social science; Katie Mayopoulos, theater; Alexandra Ozmeral, dance; Leora Sharma, choral music; and Connie Zhou, natural science.
Three Charlotte Country Day students were selected to participate: Matthew Harden will attend for social science; Alex Kim, instrumental music; and Eryn Ratcliffe, art.
