Congratulations to CCHS junior Ashton Daniels on being selected to participate in GSE 2022! Ashton is the daughter of Julie and Bozie York of Albany.
The Governor's School for Entrepreneurs (GSE) identifies and enables Kentucky high school students to become the Commonwealth's next generation of entrepreneurs. Through a three-week residential experience, GSE participants from throughout the Commonwealth are introduced to KY's most successful entrepreneurs and fastest growing businesses, equipped with the tools and skills to create and build their own businesses, and matched with complementary skilled peers to develop business plans and product or service prototypes. The annual GSE intensive program culminates in a pitch competition attended by a large audience representing Kentucky's entrepreneurial ecosystem.
In addition, as a direct result of their participation in GSE, participants qualify for nearly $3 million in scholarships from Kentucky's universities and colleges. Nearly 500 young Kentuckians have graduated from GSE since its inception in 2013. GSE gives teens an authentic glimpse into entrepreneurship and continues to develop them along their entrepreneurial journey.
