A University Heights Academy junior has been selected for the Governor’s Scholar Program.
An email from UHA says Leland Sowards will represent the private school this year. Administrators at the school nominated Sowards and he competed against other students across Kentucky for the honor—with the selection committee looking at factors such as grade point average, standardized test scores and difficulty of course load.
The application also required an outline of all extra-curricular activities and a history of volunteer service. Leland is the son of Wes and Janet Sowards.
