Valdosta - Senior Trevor Martin has only been in Valdosta a few days and he's already praising the curriculum offered by the Governor's Honors Program, or GHP. He's built a robot that can move on its own while improving his violin skills in his spare time. With only a few classes under his belt, he's learned more than he ever imagined.
"This is definitely something you wouldn't have time to do in a normal classroom. That's what GHP really allows you to do is expand. Because you have so much limited time in the classroom, GHP allows you to broaden your horizons and expand out to different fields you wouldn't be able to cover in the typical classroom curriculum," said Lovett Senior Trevor Martin.
The team behind the Governor's Honors Program hand selects the students from a line up of thousands. Assistant Program Director Dale Lyles has been on that team for twenty-two years.
"From 240,000 sophomores and Juniors in the states, 2400 are nominated. We interview those in a series of weekends at Clayton State College in January and February and from that 2400, we select 690 who attend in sixteen major areas in the program," said Lyles.
In its forty-third year, the program has grown tremendously since its creation. Its success is partially due to the recommendations of GHP Alumni. "I'm already recommending it to friends right now," says Martin.
The students will attend five more weeks of classes including Agriculture Science, Latin, Executive Management, and Architectural Design.
