Harlan is 2024 Governor's Scholar

Congratulations to Clinton County High School junior Tatum Harlan on being selected for the 2024 Governor's Scholars program.

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.

The Program’s mission is to enhance Kentucky’s next generation of civic and economic leaders. The first class numbered 230 and was housed on one college campus. Since then, the Program has enjoyed excellent support and grown to over 1,000 students on three campuses. Host campuses are determined competitively every three years. The 2023-2025 session cycle will be hosted by Centre College in Danville, Morehead State University in Morehead, and Murray State University in Murray.

Tatum will participate in the Governor's Scholars program this summer.
