Weekly Info. for November 18, 2022
If you are planning to apply, here are a few reminders and answers to some frequently asked questions: 
  • DUE DATE: Your printed application is due to me in my office before 3:30pm on Tuesday, November 22nd. This includes ALL portions of your application. Incomplete applications WILL NOT be accepted. 
  • TEACHER REC: Your teachers will most likely send their recommendation forms directly to me. You do not need to worry about having that in hand when you turn your application in to me. You should have already asked a teacher to complete this though, so if you haven't, you're running behind. I will be glad to let you know when you turn your application in to me if I have received a teacher rec. form for you. 
  • COMMUNITY REC: You WILL need to have your completed Community Recommendation form with you as part of your complete application. 
  • SIGNATURE SHEET: EVERYTHING should be typed and printed. However, you will print the student/parent signature form off and then you and your parents will sign it by hand, not digitally. 
  • ESSAY: Please make sure you follow all of GSP's guidelines for how they want this typed. Also, it's a great idea to finish it very soon and have a trusted teacher read over it to find any errors/suggestions on improvement. 
  • TEST SCORES: Many of you have yet to receive your October ACT or PSAT test scores. THIS IS FINE!!!! As long as I can verify on my end that you took one of these tests by October, I will obtain the score reports when we receive them and put them with your application. 
Please let me know if you have any questions that I have not answered! I am glad to answer anything you may be wondering. Just email me and let me know!
Thank you all so much and I can't wait to read your applications!!!

The 2023 GSE Experience and Opportunities to Learn More

The Governor's School for Entrepreneurs (GSE) will begin accepting applications for summer 2023 on Monday, Nov. 14. Deadline for submission is Monday, Jan. 23, 2023. GSE brings teens together from around the state of Kentucky, immerses them in a creative space, and arms them with the tools they need to unleash their entrepreneurial spirits. While all participants gain vital entrepreneurial skills through the program to use as they enter the workplace or continue into higher education, 20+ new businesses have already been launched by young alumni of the GSE program. Others have filed for multiple patents and developed new ideas and relationships that sow the seeds for more business formation. In addition, as a direct result of their participation in GSE, entrepreneurs qualify for some $5 million in scholarship opportunities from Kentucky's universities and colleges.

GSE has scheduled virtual info sessions this fall for prospective applicants and their families to showcase the GSE experience and dive into the application process. The link to register is below, as well as the schedule for events.
