Mayor s Scholars
Mayor’s Scholars Recognized at March 17, 2015 City Council Meeting

To be named a Mayor’s Scholar, 8th grade students must have a 2.5 GPA at a Christian County Public Schools middle school, maintain a 95% attendance rate, have no office referrals and submit an essay outlining steps the community should take to make Hopkinsville a better place for youth. All students meeting eligibility requirements were named Mayor’s Scholars last week. The top 60 essayists are invited to attend a day-long field trip to Murray State University main campus on March 31. In total, 171 scholars were named this year.

2015 marks the 5th year of the program launched as part of the Partners in Education project. The scholars program was expanded in 2013 to include all three public middle schools. For more information about the Mayor’s Scholars program, please contact Nikki Radford at or (270) 890-0215.
