ICCS Junior Ashley Webster has been accepted to attend the 2018 summer program at the Tennessee Governor's School for the Arts in Murfreesboro, Tenn. The four-week, highly selective residency program was founded in 1984 by former Governor Lamar Alexander to provide high school students gifted in music, visual art, theatre, dance, and filmmaking an opportunity to study with faculty from some of the most prestigious arts schools in the nation including Yale, Julliard, and Eastman. More than 1400 students from across the state apply for the program each January for one of 230 scholarships. Awards are announced after a rigorous admission process that includes auditions or submissions of portfolios and interview.
