LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Some Lee County students are heading to the semifinals for the Georgia Governor's Honors Program. 

Six Lee County High School students were selected as semifinalists.

The Governor's Office student achievement program is a residential summer program for gifted and talented high school juniors and seniors.

Nearly 3,400 students across the state applied, and 1,665 were chosen to advance to semifinals. 

Lee County Junior Justin Creamer is one of those students in the running. 

"Being able to have the experience in acting and working with different directors and seeing creative ingenuity on the spot. I feel like that's something that sets me apart because I've had the opportunity to work with these directors," said Creamer. 

Justin Creamer and five other Lee County High School students will participate in a state-wide interview and they're required to submit an assignment.

If Creamer is selected, then he will participate in the Governor's Honor Program this summer at Berry College in Rome, Georgia.
