Four Fike High School students have been selected to attend North Carolina Governor’s School.
They are the only Wilson County Schools students to be chosen for the elite educational program.
Governor’s School is a nearly six-week summer residential program for intellectually gifted high school students.
The program brings together various academic disciplines, the arts and other unique courses for the advancement of students who attend.
Candidates are selected based on their strengths in various subject areas.
The Fike students who have been chosen are Gabe Cox, Devin Lin, Caroline Searcy and Thorne Williford.
Wilson County Schools Superintendent Lane Mills introduced the four at Monday’s Wilson County Board of Education meeting.
Mills said Gabe and Caroline are attending for social science, Devin is going for natural science and Thorne for Spanish.
Mills congratulated the four students, their parents and the Fike High School administration for the accomplishment.
