Augusta Students Selected for GUK Summer Academy

Summer academy students

Four 9th grade students from Augusta Independent have been selected to participate in this year’s 2022 GEAR UP Summer Academy. During the summer, students will spend three weeks on a college campus at either Morehead State University or Eastern Kentucky University where they will receive hands-on instruction from college professors, live in college dorms, enjoy campus amenities, and visit local attractions at no cost to them. Students underwent a competitive application process that considered GPA, an essay, and attendance from over 130 applications across the state with only 30 students selected per college campus. Congratulations to these students!
