NEWS > Yeager Scholar Coordinator Serves as Co-Dean for Governor’s Honors Academy


For the first time in 15 years, the Governor’s Honors Academy is returning to Huntington. Made up of 170 outstanding West Virginia high school scholars who will be seniors in the fall, the three-week academy will be at Marshall July 1– 21.

The 2018 GHA program at Marshall will concentrate on “Your Digital World.” Instructors will combine STEM topics with the arts and humanities. They’ll examine different academic areas that benefit from today’s technology and meld that into curriculum and activities. GHA will promote critical thinking as students define their paths as digital citizens.

The co-deans for GHA 2018 are Cara Bailey, Coordinator of the Yeager Scholars Program, and Mallory Carpenter, Program Manager for the Office of National Scholarships in the Honors College.
