Governor's School of North Carolina in its 51st Summer
8:23am Jul 08, 2013
Last July the Governor’s School of North Carolina (NCGS) celebrated its 50th anniversary. It's a remarkable program where each summer many of our state’s best and brightest students from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds gather for the love of learning and the joy of creativity. At the Governor’s School intellectual curiosity fuels the exploration of the latest ideas in a whole host of disciplines.
David Ford spoke with 2012 NC Governor’s School Director Lucy Milner and 2012 Governor's School percussion student Alex Kim. And today, we sample from a Governor's School West orchestra performance.
While state funding for the program was cut last year, leading the drive to raise 760,00 to restore the school was Wake Forest University Department of Education professor and Governor’s School Board Member Joseph Milner. This year, The Governor’s School of North Carolina celebrates its 51st summer.
