Academy junior joins select group

Nathan Ward, a junior at Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg and the son of Tara and Jamie Ward, has been selected to participate in the 2014 Kentucky Governor’s Scholar program this summer. Ward was one of nearly 1,000 students in Kentucky selected from a rigorous application process.

Only students with exceptional grades, high ACT scores, outstanding character, community involvement and expressive written and verbal communication skills were considered.

“Nathan, with a great deal of encouragement and support from his mom and dad, worked exceptionally hard on his application,” said Sandra Bowman, Christian Academy director of curriculum and instruction. “He has been focused on this opportunity for several years and, obviously, put a great deal of effort into the process. He is highly deserving of this selection. Certainly, as a school family, we are very proud of him.”

Ward will spend 5 weeks at either Bellarmine University, Morehead State University or Murray State University. That will be decided later this month.

After his senior year, Ward will major in engineering at the University of Kentucky.
