Marshall's Senf, Wells chosen for Honors Academy Program

Staff report

Marshall County High School students Christopher Senf and Caroline Wells have been selected for the Commonwealth Honors Academy Program at Murray State University.

CHA Scholars are chosen from applicants representing high school juniors throughout Kentucky as well as the MSU out-of-state service region. All students applying for the Commonwealth Honors Academy should have a 3.5 GPA (on a 4-point scale) and 25 Composite ACT (or the equivalent PSAT, SAT or PLAN score).

CHA is a three-week academic, social and personal growth program for students who have completed their junior year. Upon completion of the Academy, students will receive six hours of university credit, have the opportunity to take three hours of tuition-free university courses at Murray State University during the subsequent fall and spring semesters, and be awarded a four-year, $2,000-per-year housing scholarship to attend Murray State University.

The Academy differs from the traditional high school in its approach to learning and in the creation of a living-learning community. The interaction of students with different backgrounds is one of the most valuable aspects of the academy. Exceptional speakers, performers, films, interesting field trips, special events and recreational experiences offer students an array of stimulating activities that provide fun and enjoyment, as well as learning opportunities.
