Students participate in Governor's Schools at UT

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE (AP) - About 100 of Tennessee's top high school students are participating in the annual Governor's Schools for the Sciences and Engineering at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

Students are housed together, attend social events together, and basically do all of the things they would if they were enrolled as college students.

The concept was proposed by then-Governor Lamar Alexander in 1984 as a venue to serve the state's top high school students.

The Governor's School for the Sciences merged with the Governor's School for Engineering in 2007. That brought together the College of Engineering and College of Arts and Sciences as co-sponsors.

The schools run through June 29.
