Dear Students, Parents, Teachers & Friends of Education,

WBHS Students - Governor's Honor Finalist

The Governor's Honors Program is a highly competitive, immersive summer program offered to sophomore and junior students. Each year, hundreds of students compete for program spots in a wide variety of academic and elective courses that offer high school students a chance to focus on an area they feel they truly excel. Program participants receive an all-expenses paid, four week summer program at Berry College in Rome, Georgia where they work with other students on project-based assignments in their academic or elective field. This year, Winder-Barrow High School has the distinction of placing two students in the GHP summer program- Taylor Gray(R) for Communicative Arts (ELA) and Chloe Wise(L) for Science.

Congratulations to these two extraordinary young students, we know that they will show the rest of the state what it means to be "GG"!

Keeping with tradition, Robin Blan's classes at Russell Middle School participated in the Farm Bureau Essay Contest. This year's topic concerned Georgia's specialty crops of fruits and vegetables. Seventy-one essays were submitted with two students taking the top cash prizes. Winners were Anna Sears, 1st place(L) and Ella Ramsell(R), 2nd place, shown here with Ms. Blan and Staci Hubbard of the Barrow County Farm Bureau.
