CCHS Junior Kelley Turner Accepted to MSU's Commonwealth Honors Academy

Calloway County High School junior Kelley Turner has been accepted for Murray State University's Commonwealth Honors Academy. Kelley is the daughter of Ricky and Angie Turner.

The Commonwealth Honors Academy is a three-week academic enrichment experience held every June on Murray State University’s main campus. Students live and learn with their peers and teachers from the area as they take college-level honors courses, take field trips that enrich classroom experiences, attend speakers and listen to professional artists perform and talk about their work, and participate in social and personal growth seminars.

Students that attend CHA receive six hours of tuition-free, transferable university credit. Students also receive an in-state full tuition scholarship with a 3.5 high school GPA and a minimum 25 ACT Composite score. Each student will be assigned to an Interdisciplinary Humanities and Fine Arts (IDHFA) course and to one elective in Business, Science, Education, Health Sciences, Humanities and Fine Arts, Social Science, Communications, or Engineering.
