Three Juniors Selected as Governor's Scholars

Three juniors from Newport Central Catholic High School have been selected to represent NCC in the Governor's Scholar Program this summer.  They are as follows:  

Lexy Breen - daughter of Phil and Donna Breen of St. Joseph Parish

Sarah Krebs – daughter of Matt and Beth Krebs of St. Therese Parish

Ryan Flanigan - son of Mike and Gail Flanigan of St. Therese Parish

This prestigious five-week study program provides academic and personal growth in a non-traditional experience at Northern Kentucky University, Morehead State University, or Murray State University.  Students were selected on the basis of test scores from the PSAT, SAT or ACT.  Their unweighted GPA and difficulty of course load was also taken into consideration.  Students submitted a writing entry and demonstrated what they have done in the areas of extracurricular activities and service. 

Ms. Joanna Loechel, Assistant Principal of Academics stated, "Being chosen for the Governor’s Scholar Program, one of Kentucky’s top student awards, is quite an accomplishment, a culmination of not only copious hours spent in academic study and community service, but in simply applying for the program.  Thousands of highly qualified juniors from across the state of Kentucky apply each year, and the competition is fierce not only at the school level but then at the diocesan and state levels as well.  We are proud to recognize Lexy Breen, Sarah Krebs and Ryan Flanigan and congratulate them on their acceptance to this distinguished program; they truly deserve and have earned this opportunity."
