Mississippi Governor’s School Session to Kick Off Soon

COLUMBUS, Miss. (Press Release) — Approximately 85 scholars will attend Mississippi Governor’s School (MGS) at Mississippi University for Women June 1-20. The theme for this year’s session is Social Responsibility: Ethics & Collaboration in a Time of Crisis.

MGS is a residential honors program established in 1981 by Gov. William F. Winter and the faculty and administration at MUW. MGS is designed to provide academic, creative and leadership experiences for a limited number of rising high school juniors and seniors who have demonstrated exceptional ability and achievement in academics and community involvement and who show high intellectual, creative and leadership potential.

Each summer, MGS brings together high ability learners from across the state of Mississippi for a three-week residential collegiate experience that blends cultural, academic, social and recreational components into a rich and natural learning environment. The community of interaction created by the MGS program inspires the love of learning, discovery of self and the desire to use gifts and talents to improve society.

Since its establishment, MGS has provided more than 4,300 students from across the state of Mississippi with a high quality educational experience that has challenged them to grow as individuals. MGS is funded by the Mississippi Legislature, and there is no charge to attend.
