Paducah Tilghman juniors chosen as Governor's Scholars

Staff report

Paducah Tilghman juniors Karlee Humphrey and Anne Lasher have been chosen as scholars, and junior Molly Thompson has been chosen as an alternate in the 2014 Kentucky Governor's Scholars Program.

The Governor's Scholars Program is a five-week summer program that is limited to 1,000 of the state's most outstanding students. Established in 1983, the program provides academic and personal growth through the balance of a strong liberal arts program with a full co-curricular and residential life experience. The scholars will convene this year at Bellarmine University, Morehead State University and Murray State University.

The program is meant to help the participants achieve their academic and personal potential, encourage leadership skills, and to develop creativity and critical thinking skills.

Scholars live in dormitories on the college campus, giving them a feel of what life will be like once they leave high school. They attend classes, seminars, and co-curricular activities. Speakers and performers come to lead activities such as films, field trips, and other special events.

Lasher is a member of the PTHS tennis team, cheerleading squad, Interact club, mock trial, student council, National Honor Society and Beta Club. She is a member of the Immanuel Baptist Church youth group. Her parents are Blaine and Lisa Lasher.

Humphrey is a member of the PTHS girls basketball team, softball team, mock trial, Beta Club, and National Honor Society. She participates in summer basketball and softball travel teams. Her parents are David and Danette Humphrey.

Thompson is a member of the PTHS girls soccer team, National Honor Society, and Beta Club. She works with the Oscar Cross Boys and Girls Club. Her parents are Mark and Gretchen Thompson.
