Carrington, Napoleon students attending North Dakota Governor’s School – Jamestown Sun

FARGO — Students Napoleon and Carrington are among 41 scholars who are part of the North Dakota Governor’s School Class of 2024. The scholars represent 27 high schools, 21 school districts and 17 counties across the state, the State University of North Dakota.

The four-week residential program will begin with an opening ceremony on Sunday, June 2 at 3:30 p.m. in NDSU’s A. Glenn Hill Center, room 112. Sen. Ron Sorvaag, R-Fargo, will deliver remarks at the ceremony.

Students live on the NDSU campus during the month of June while attending classes, engaging in engaging research, small group instruction and hands-on experiences, and participating in enriching STEM-oriented extracurricular activities.

“We are excited to welcome students to NDSU to experience the uniqueness of our campus and educational offerings,” said NDSU President David Cook. “I look forward to meeting every student at the Governor’s School. I know they will have a transformative experience during their summer here at NDSU.”

Scholars were selected through a competitive application process and admitted based on their academic achievement, above-average ability in STEM subjects, and teacher/counselor recommendation. They were also asked to submit a personal essay as part of their application.

The following students from the area were admitted to their respective programs:

Information technology:
Jack Hoberg, Napoleon High School

Math:

Sam Simons, Carrington High School

This year’s researchers will present their research while meeting with other Governor’s School graduates on Thursday, June 27, with a closing ceremony scheduled for Friday, June 28, from 12:45 to 1:15 p.m. in Center A. Glenn Hill of NDSU, room 112. .

The North Dakota Governor’s School, which began at NDSU in 1990, allows high-achieving, academically motivated North Dakota high school students who have completed their sophomore or junior year to experience what life is like in – a university campus.

The North Dakota Legislature provides funding to the Governor’s School to help pay for student housing, meals, resident assistants, program directors, instructors and faculty research sponsors. The program is funded by Senate Bill 2200, which was sponsored by Sens. Ron Sorvaag, R-Fargo, and Larry Luick, R-Fairmount.

The North Dakota Governor’s School is affiliated with more than 55 other Governor’s School programs in 25 states within the National Conference of Governor’s Schools.
