Celebrate Success –
HCHS has a rare achievement that is amazing for one of our junior students, Miranda Phipps. She scored perfect score on her ACT. A perfect score is a 36! Way to go Miranda all your hard work paid off!!! To put it in perspective less than one tenth of 1 percent of students who take the test achieve perfection. Of the nearly 1.85 million members of the 2014 high school graduating class who took the ACT, only 1,407 earned a perfect score. What an achievement! Congratulations Miranda!!!
 
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. In the spirit of partnership, the Office of the Governor, the Kentucky State Legislature, and private enterprise come together to provide the financial support for the Program. 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.  Congratulations to the following HCHS students that have been accepted for the 2015 Governor’s Scholars Program:
Magdalena Welch
Shelby Buckman
Grant Maglinger
Kole Gibson
James Payne
Miranda Phipps
Trupte Patel
Alexandra Richey
