The Covington News - - THE SECOND OPINION -

Five New­ton County stu­dents will par­tic­i­pate in the fifth an­nual Gover­nor’ Hon­ors Pro­gram to be held at Wes­leyan Col­lege in Ma­con.

Th­ese stu­dents are among the 400 of Ge­or­gia’s aca­dem­i­cally elite to at­tend this pro­gram. Ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a rig­or­ous, chal­leng­ing pro­gram of study, the par­tic­i­pants will en­joy weekly book re­views, sem­i­nars and dis­cus­sions on con­tem­po­rary is­sues and ideas and ex­cit­ing speak­ers and spe­cial events.

The pro­gram par­tic­i­pants, se­lected on a highly com­pet­i­tive ba­sis, rep­re­sent over 90 school sys­tems in the state of Ge­or­gia.

Lo­cal stu­dents and their ar­eas of in­ter­est are Miss Su­san Kirk­land, math­e­mat­ics; Mr. James Porter Peay, mu­sic; Miss Su­san Ch­ester, mu­sic; Miss Phyl­lis Naomi Ward, drama; and Mr. Lee Still Piper, science. Por­terdale School names su­perla­tives at grad­u­a­tion
