Two Fayette County students have been selected to attend the Academy of Mathematics and Science in Kentucky at Western Kentucky University.
Sophomores John Bowie from Lafayette High, and Daniel Coffman from Paul Laurence Dunbar High, will join 120 students from across the state this fall as part of the academy’s inaugural class. The pair will spend their junior and senior years at WKU, taking classes offered by the university. At the end of two years, John and Daniel will earn sixty college credit hours in addition to completing high school.
The goal of the program is to enable Kentucky’s exceptional young scientists and mathematicians to learn in an environment which offers advanced educational opportunities and prepares them for leadership roles in the Commonwealth. To be selected, students must demonstrate excellence in the areas of academic content, communication skills, maturity and personal character.
