RALEIGH–This summer, 550 of the most distinguished North Carolina rising high school juniors and seniors will attend the 2012 Governor’s School. This year’s attendees are particularly fortunate as the program’s future was in question after Governor’s School funding was eliminated in the N.C. General Assembly’s 2011-13 biennial budget. Thanks to the efforts of the N. C. Governor’s School Foundation, which raised more than $700,000, the program is able to continue this year. Kelly Petrarca and Angie Estevez will attend Governor’s School West in the Social Sciences program.
