Governor Perdue visits with students

July 18 2003

Valdosta - Governor Sonny Perdue was in South Georgia Friday, spending the afternoon with some of the state's brightest students. 

He visited with participants in the Governor's Honors program. The students were nominated by their teachers, then selected after a series of intense interviews to take part in the six week academic experience.

Governor Perdue says these teens are the future of Georgia.  "You will be the ones leading the state in technology, science, politics, and making the decisions that influence the future of this state," said Perdue. 

The Governor's Honors Program is held every year at Valdosta State University. The students will return home next week.
