GCHS sophomores Aubrey Morse and Madisyn Braden have been chosen as candidates for Gatton Academy, a residential academic program at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green. It began in 2007 and has continued to expand over the last several years. Students live on-campus and attend classes for their junior and senior years of high school.
Aubrey Morse is the daughter of David and Lee Ann Morse. She attended Symsonia Elementary and GCMS before coming to GCHS. Aubrey says she is thrilled about being accepted into this prestigious program. “I am so excited to take on the challenge and the experience that I will have! This is such a unique opportunity and I am super excited to be able to achieve my highest goals,” she states. Morse plans to study Biology or Chemistry for her undergraduate work with the intent of then attending medical school.
Madisyn Braden is the daughter of Robert and Whitney Braden. Before coming to GCHS, Madisyn attended Sedalia Elementary and GCMS. She says she is honored to have been chosen, stating, “it has been my dream since I was in the 8th grade, so to have gotten in is beyond exciting! I cannot wait to begin this life-changing experience!” She adds that she is excited about all the opportunities attending Gatton Academy will afford her, including studying abroad. Braden says she intends to focus her studies on psychological sciences.
Congratulations to these two young women on this major accomplishment. Your home school is proud of you; good luck in Bowling Green!
