Johnston County students attend Governor’s School

August 18, 2013 

Three Johnston County students were chosen to attend Governor’s School this summer.

Cameron Ross McCullers of Smithfield-Selma High School was selected to study natural science, Diana M. Arguijo-Mendoza of Corinth Holders High School in Wendell was selected for the math program, and Kathryn A. Townsend, also a Corinth Holders student, was picked for the social science program.

The students were honored at the April Board of Education meeting.

Governor’s School is a five-week residential program for intellectually gifted high school students. Students are first nominated by principals, teachers or counselors at their schools, then selected by district and then state committees.
