The Tilghman Bell would like to congratulate Brock Sigler, Darrion Woodall, and Savanna Whelan. Sigler and Woodal were accepted in Kentucky’s GSA program this upcoming summer. Whelan was selected as an alternate.

Governor’s School for the Arts, or GSA, is a three week program in which “students live, breathe, eat and sleep the arts. It’s a thrilling, often life changing experience, as they meet new friends, explore their creativity, and discover new things about who they are and who they can be in the future,” according to kentuckygsa.org.

GSA offers nine different art form summer concentrations including Architecture, Creative Writing, Dance, Drama, Instrumental Music, Musical Theatre, New Media, Visual Art, and Vocal Music.
