The West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE) announced April 22, 2020, that the Governor's Schools scheduled for summer 2020 have all be postponed or cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Each year, the WVDE holds the Governor’s Schools at West Virginia college and university campuses and state facilities. West Virginia University and Marshall University have both announced that they will cancel on-site courses and resort to online instruction only this summer. Therefore, the venues will no longer be available. Both universities were scheduled to host several weeks of the Governor’s Schools at their Morgantown and Huntington campuses beginning June 14 and extending through July 13.
Next year (Summer 2021) the WVDE will double the number of programs offered to make sure that those students selected this year will still be able to participate.
Like many tourists, the GSA Class of 2019 was eager to be part of one of Chicago’s most popular photo op sites. The actual name of this sculpture, which consists of 168 polished stainless steel plates, making it look like fluid mercury, is "Cloud Gate," but its informal name is The Bean because of its appearance. Students attended a symphony in Millennium Park prior to this photo.
