Outstanding high school seniors were invited to attend Georgia Southern University's third annual Southern Scholars Showcase in December. Four students from Fayette County were invited to the program at Georgia Southern's main campus in Statesboro. The Fayette students were Emily Hixon from Woodward Academy in Fayetteville, Ethan Milukas from Mother of Divine Grace School and Patrick Smith and Kent Thompson from Sandy Creek High School. Hixon and Thompson are from Fayetteville, and Milukas and Smith are from Peachtree City. "Georgia Southern University's Southern Scholars Showcase, a unique by-invitation-only event, attracts outstanding high school seniors from all over the Southeast," said Susan Davies, director of admissions at Georgia Southern. "Georgia Southern continues to attract top students who not only value personal attention, but the amenities and benefits of a major research institution."
To be invited, students must score a minimum of 1300 on the SAT, or 29 on the ACT, with a strong academic average in high school courses. During the Showcase, students are given direct access to student organizations, academic and student service offerings, and also interview for a variety of Georgia Southern University academic scholarships.
