DANVILLE, KYSome of the activities people choose to participate in may or may not have a big impact on that person's life.
Then there are the once-in-a-lifetime experiences that sparkle like gemsthe things that people should choose to do. One of those things is the Governor's Scholars Program.
Some people may ask why is this so? "Why" is always a good question. As we progress through life, we're taught to ask both why and how. It's only when we ask these questions that we truly get answers.
So why should one attend GSP? GSP offers high school students the rare opportunity to experience college life for a period of five weeks.
More importantly, it allows the chance to grow and mature into the person you'll become for the rest of your life. GSP teaches you about your surroundings and even more about yourself.
Looking back at the past few weeks, GSP has allowed me to realize my potential and what my future holds. The utopian society created by GSP has allowed me to think about my future and about what's occurring in the present.
The classes at GSP are similar to small-college classes in both subject and the atmosphere.
The community is very open, accepting, full of new ideas and what we have in store for the futurebecause we are the future.
The faculty, resident assistants, and so many others teach usnot only by what they say and do, but also by what they don't do. They make students think "outside-of-the-box."
These people have chosen a life of service or are on track at college to a service-related career. They give back to their community and in this case GSP.
GSP provides a major step toward success. GSP provides a wonderful chance to learn and grow, so make the most of it. Live in the moment; do not think, just do.
