GSSM Students Honored at South Carolina Scholars Day

Eleven students from the South Carolina Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics (GSSM) were recognized at the 4th Annual Scholars Day celebration at the Statehouse, hosted by the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education.

GSSM’s deserving merit scholars included: Cris Musselwhite, Hartsville; Kate Drafts, Lexington; Nate Myers, Andrews; Meghan Chandler, Darlington; Rohit Sreedharan, Rock Hill; Marissa Moultrie, Summerville; Abagail Gall, Leesville; Millie Agrawal, Kershaw; Adrielle Shaffer, Greenwood; Sara Khalil, Dillon; and Kelly Brock, Greenwood.

The students were joined by their parents, principals, guidance counselors, Senators and House Members as they celebrated state-funded scholarship support, which assists students in achieving their postsecondary educational goals and South Carolina’s higher education value. More than 65 percent of GSSM’s Class of 2007 elected to attend an in-state college or university.

Located in Hartsville, the South Carolina Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics is a public, residential high school for academically talented juniors and seniors.
