3 Rockdale students among Governor's Honors finalists

CONYERS, Ga. -- Three students at Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technoloy are among nearly 700 finalists statewide for the 2012 Georgia Governor's Honors Program.

Governor's Honors is a residential program held every summer at Valdosta State University. It gives smart, talented high school students an opportunity to explore their favorite subjects in a challenging and engaging environment.

"GHP is such a competitive program that even being nominated is an accomplishment," Dale Lyles, director of the program, said in a statement. "I congratulate the students of Rockdale County Public Schools and look forward to meeting them and their parents in June."

Students must undergo a rigorous interview and application process in order to be chosen for the program.

Rockdale County's three finalists are:

* Jasmine Johnson, chemistry
* Heeyoon Kim, mathematics
* Zachary York, mathematics
