GSPGroup Governor's Scholars Announced

Henry County Public Schools is pleased to announce its 2019 Governor’s Scholars participants. Congratulations to Maggie Whaley, Sydney Bastin and Jada Medina (alternate).

The Governor’s Scholars Program is a summer residential program for outstanding high school students in Kentucky who are rising seniors. The program originated in 1983 as a result of Kentucky leaders’ concern that the state’s “best and brightest” were leaving the Commonwealth to pursue educational and career opportunities elsewhere without fully understanding the potential of their talents at home. Students who are selected attend the program without charge.

SourcesStrength Program Supports Mental Wellness

Research shows that approximately 60 percent of youth in the United States have exposure to some type of trauma and could experience mental health issues as a result. A new program at Henry County High School aims to provide opportunities for students in need to reach out to an unlikely, but very natural resource – other students.

The mission of Sources of Strength, a heavily researched intervention program, is to “provide the highest quality evidence-based prevention for suicide, violence, bullying and substance abuse by training, supporting and empowering both peer leaders and caring adults to impact their world through the power of connection, hope, help and strength.”
