MHS student to attend Governor’s School for the Humanities
Kimani Robinson, a rising junior at Middlesex High School, has been selected to attend the Summer Residential Governor’s School for Humanities, a four-week program hosted by the Virginia Department of Education and Radford University.
The Summer Residential Governor’s School for Humanities program offers a broad-based, interdisciplinary presentation of courses related to the program’s theme. Coursework offers students opportunities to explore how modern society requires, encourages and restricts individuals as they seek realization of their creative potential. Robinson will be able to explore humanities in the digital age through history, literature, philosophy, anthropology, political science, economics, sociology, psychology and media.
Robinson was chosen to attend the Summer Residential Governor’s School program through an application process for rising juniors and seniors at Middlesex High School. In addition to the humanities program, programs are available in agriculture, life science and medicine, or math/science/technology. Robinson will live in a campus dormitory, eat in the university’s dining hall, and has even been instructed to bring quarters to do his laundry.
Students interested in applying for summer 2015 may contact the guidance office at Middlesex High School or the division gifted coordinator for more information.
