Annabelle Dickson and Rachel Farhat, both students at Southside High School, were selected to attend the 2017 Arkansas Governor’s School (AGS) hosted at Hendrix College. Selection for Governor’s School is based on a combination of ability and interest and is highly competitive. Dickson will attend for drama. Farhat will attend for instrumental music.
AGS is for gifted and talented students who are upcoming high school seniors and residents of the state of Arkansas. The program is funded by the Arkansas State Legislature as a portion of the biennial appropriation for Gifted and Talented Programs through the State Department of Education. State funds provide tuition, room, board and instructional materials for each student who attends the program. AGS is a non-credit program that seeks to create a unique experience for a select group of Arkansas’ best students in which the students are exposed to an intellectual atmosphere both inside and outside the classrooms.
AGS is a six-week residential program founded in 1980 and has been held on the campus of Hendrix College since its creation. For information about the program — including past curriculum, speakers, and activities — visit www.hendrix.edu/ags/.
