COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Students at Columbus and Northside High School have been selected to be a part of the 2015 Governor's Honors Program.

The Governor's Honors Program, known as the GHP, is a residential summer program for gifted and talented high school juniors and seniors. There are 14 Muscogee County School District students who are finalists for this program that will take place at the campus of Valdosta State University.
