Two Newport Catholic Students Selected for Governor's Scholars Program
Two juniors from Newport Central Catholic High School have been selected to represent NCC in the Governor's Scholar Program this summer.
The students are Jacob Frisk and Jonah Krebs.
The five-week study program provides academic and personal growth opportunities at three colleges or universities in Kentucky.
Students were selected on the basis of test scores from the PSAT, SAT or ACT. Their unweighted GPA and difficulty of course load was also taken into consideration. Students submitted a writing entry and demonstrated what they have done in the areas of extracurricular activities and service.
"Being chosen for the Governor’s Scholar Program, one of Kentucky’s top student awards, is quite an accomplishment - long hours of school work, community service, and applying for the program," said principal Ron Dawn. "Thousands of highly qualified juniors from across the state of Kentucky apply each year, and the competition is fierce. We are proud to recognize Jacob and Jonah and congratulate them on their acceptance to this distinguished program; they truly deserve and have earned this opportunity."
