Covington Catholic High School announced that five students were accepted into the 2018 Kentucky Governor's Scholars Program and four were accepted to the Governor's School for the Arts.
Harrison Farrar, Nathan Guenther, Grant Hemmer, Jude Kiely, and Lance Knipper were admitted to the GSA.
Students were evaluated in areas of service, extracurricular activities, academics, and writing submissions against top-level students from all around Kentucky. They are now invited to participate in the 5-week residential program this coming summer on one of three host campuses in Kentucky.
The Governor's Scholars Program was established in 1983 and provides academic and personal growth opportunities through the balance of a strong liberal arts program with a full co-curricular and residential life experience. Those selected attend the program free of charge.\

Three additional students were named as alternates: Luke Eisner (vocal music) Lukas Hummeldorf (musical theatre), and Liam Merkle (architecture & design and visual art).
