Two Accepted for Tennessee Governor’s School 2016
Posted on 05/05/2016

Springfield High School junior Dylan May and Greenbrier High School sophomore Spencer Hall will be spending the month of June in the Tennessee Governor’s School.  May will be attending sessions at Middle Tennessee State University, and Hall’s curriculum will be at UT Knoxville.

 

May’s focus will be in the arts, specifically music and vocals.  His passion for the field is evidenced by his fluency with French horn, voice, trumpet, piano and organ.  When a middle school student, he was the youngest member ever of the Nashville Youth Orchestra, and has sung in Carnegie Hall under the leadership of  British composer and director John Rutter.

 

Hall will be furthering his education in the science field, with a specific focus on medical/health subjects.   Ultimately he hopes to work in dental or orthodontics, both of which he says fascinate him.  As a sophomore at GHS, he is a member of many of the school’s clubs and organizations, including the Spanish Club, National Honor Society and Jr. Civitan Club.  He further uses his time in volunteer work and playing three school sports: golf, basketball and soccer. 

 

Both of these students will spend the majority of the month of June in their respective studies and will return home with a new level of training, tools and contacts.

 

According to their website, the Tennessee Governor’s School provides 12 summer programs for gifted and talented high school students in grades 10 and 11.. Nominations for any of the schools must be made by high school counselors or principals.
