Out of all Forsyth County School students, 14 students from the Raider Nation have been selected to represent our county and advance to the state level of the Governor’s Honors Program. This is a prestigious summer instructional program for only a select group of especially gifted nominees from all over Georgia. If any of North Forsyth’s representatives are selected as finalists, they can expect to be notified in March of 2018.


There were 10 juniors and nine sophomores selected to move forward in areas of music, science, communicative arts, world languages, visual arts, and agricultural science. These students were (in alphabetical order) Isabelle Angell, Mason Arbeiter, David Cain, John Drake, Michael Gugliotta, Tasfia Hussain, Katelyn Jordan, Madison Martin, Harley McCullar, Quillen McKinney, Aarsh Patel, Caroline Steinman, Maggie Sullivan and Bryce Wethington.


Those who move forward will become semi-finalists and eventually finalists with acceptance to the four-week program at Berry College in Rome, GA. There, they will participate in a wide variety of social and instructional opportunities every evening” and be enriched as future leaders and thinkers. Simply being selected as a county nominee is a huge accomplishment, and these students deserve all the congratulations for their achievements.
