Six Rockdale County students have been selected as finalists for the 2014 Governor’s Honors Program, a four-week residential summer program that will be held on the campus of Valdosta State University for gifted and talented high school juniors and seniors. Students who are selected for the program spend time exploring their major subject area of nomination as well as other topics that are not usually found in regular high school classroom settings. Evenings are filled with seminars, activities, concerts, and performances.

The Rockdale students are:

Joshua Baker (Chemistry), Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology

Faith Cheng (Social Studies), Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology

Ryan Gaylor (Communicative Arts), Heritage High School

Brionna Johnigan (Executive Management), Rockdale Career Academy

Naomi Siddique (Math), Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology

 Lilith South (Biology), Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology

In the event that the finalists are unable to attend the program, the following students were named as alternates:

Ansley Smith (Communicative Arts), Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology

Carlan Ivey (Technology), Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology Salvador Castro (Physics), Rockdale Career Academy

More than 2,900 students from across the state auditioned for the program in January and February, and from those nominees 690 finalists were chosen. Since the program is fully funded by the Georgia General Assembly, there is no charge for students to attend.

The 2014 program will be the 51st summer, making it the longest-continually running program of its kind in the nation.
