This year three students from Beebe Public Schools have been selected to attend the 2016 Arkansas Governor's School hosted at Hendrix College. Those selected to attend are (from left to right):

Charlie Fancyboy selected for Instrumental Music

Cassidy Davison selected for Instrumental Music

Lucas Diffy selected for English Language Arts

This year, the Governor's School received more than 600 applications from 100 schools, representing 41 counties. AGS is designed for only 400 students, so the competition is very strong. Selection for Governor's School is based on a combination of ability and chosen interest. This six week intensive program is in its thirty-sixth year.
