CHS has strong legacy in prestigious program
Carrollton High School sophomore Walker Camp will be headed to Berry College in Rome this summer to participate in the prestigious Governor’s Honors program.
The Governor’s Honors Program, known as GHP, is a four-week residential summer enrichment program, to be held this year June 20 through July 17, for gifted and talented rising high school juniors and seniors. Students who attend public, private, and home schools are eligible for nomination in one of 20 subject areas.
Walker will compete in science, a subject that he says comes easy to him. He also plays alto saxophone in the Trojan Band and is a Boy Scout in Troop #138. He noted the week of his Governor’s Honors state interview, he also earned his Eagle Scout designation. He is the son of Andy and Molly Camp.
Carrollton High School has a strong legacy of producing GHP finalists. Three CHS students were selected for the program in 2012 and 2013, four in 2014, one in 2015, four in 2016, five in 2017, two in 2018, and one in 2019. No finalists were named in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
