This summer two Warwick High School students, Henry Stover, and Lauren Reinhart had the opportunity to attend The Pennsylvania Governor's School for Global and International Studies. This four week-residential program held at the University of Pittsburgh equips high-school sophomores and juniors with the tools to learn and think globally, enhance their communication skills and study with a variety of students from across the state.
“The unique opportunity that Governor’s School presented to me was definitely a one of a kind educational experience that I will not forget. The Governor’s School for Global and International Studies, was a totally immersive experience. It gave me an outlet to discuss global issues, as well as an opportunity to produce projects that involved researching issues that are happening around the world,” said Henry Stover, soon to be senior at Warwick.
To apply for the summer program students had to submit topical essays, demonstrate extra curricular activities and have recommendations provided by their teachers. PSAT scores are also taken into consideration.
“This would not be possible without the University of Pittsburgh Global Studies Department. I thank them for hosting high school students from all across Pennsylvania with this wonderful educational experience. I would also like to thank all my teachers at Warwick, for supporting me in this educational endeavor," stated Stover.
