Goodfellow, Collie selected for Mississippi Governor’s School

St. Patrick juniors Desiree Goodfellow and Samuel Collie have been selected to participate in the 2015 session of the Mississippi Governor’s School (MGS) to be held at Mississippi University for Women.  This is a tremendous honor, and is reflective of these students’ exceptional abilities.  This year’s scholars were selected from among outstanding high school students from across the state of Mississippi.

MGS is a residential honors program established in 1981 by Governor William F. Winter and the faculty and administration at Mississippi University for Women.

The MGS is designed to provide academic, creative, and leadership experiences for a limited number of rising high school juniors and seniors who have demonstrated exceptional ability and achievement in academics and community involvement and who show high intellectual, creative, and leadership potential.

Each summer, the MGS brings together high potential learners from across the state of Mississippi for a three-week residential collegiate experience that blends cultural, academic, social, and recreational components into a rich and natural learning environment.

The community of interaction created by the MGS program inspires the love of learning, discovery of self, and the desire to use gifts and talents to improve society. Since its establishment, the MGS has provided approximately 3,500 students from across the state of Mississippi with a high quality educational experience that has challenged them to grow as individuals.
