Every year AAA is able to nominate 11 rising seniors (current juniors) into an amazing program called Arkansas Governor's School. This is a 4 week summer program at Arkansas Tech University in Russellville, AR. The state funds the tuition, room, board, and instructional materials for each student. Students are selected on the basis of their special aptitudes in one of eight fields: Choral Music, Drama, English/Language Arts, Instrumental Music, Mathematics, Natural Science, Social Science, or Visual Arts.
In order for students to be nominated, they are to write an essay on why they would like to attend this program and how they would benefit from it. The essays are due November 16th at 3:00pm. Students can submit their essay to Mrs. McGaugh at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please feel free to contact her if you have any further questions.
