CHS sophomore to attend GSA

Jeremiah Jackson has made school history.

 

Jackson, who will finish his sophomore year of high school in a few weeks, has been chosen to attend the Kentucky Governor’s School for the Arts.

 

He is the first CHS student to be chosen to attend the GSA musical theatre program.

 

About 1,400 students applied to attend GSA, and more than 700 were granted an audition.

 

It was recently announced that 256 students were accepted to attend the three-week program, which will be at Centre College in Danville.

 

According to the GSA website, Jackson is the only student in Taylor County to be accepted for this year’s program.

 

Jackson will attend GSA from June 18 to July 8.

 

He is one of only 26 musical theatre students in Kentucky to attend this year’s GSA program, with an additional 10 chosen as alternates.

 

At GSA, Kentucky’s finest young artists spend three weeks of incredibly intense and fun arts instruction. Students audition in nine disciplines, including architecture/design, creative writing, dance, drama, instrumental music, musical theatre, new media/still photography and film, visual art and vocal music.

 

GSA participants live on a college campus during the program and have the opportunity to meet new friends, explore their creativity and discover who they are and who they can be in the future.

 

Jackson, who has performed in several musicals at Campbellsville University and as part of the CHS Show Choir, said he is excited to attend GSA and looking forward to growing as a performer and person.

 

He is the son of Godfrey and Chanelle Jackson. His sister, Jaclyn, is a fourth-grader at Campbellsville Middle School.
