I went to MGS 2003, and have to say it was one of the best experiences of my life. I made lifelong friends and learned many amazing things. MGS is a great program that kids should be encouraged to get involved in!

The Mississippi Governor's School was an awesome experience! I attended it during the summer of 2007. No, it is not a place to learn how to be a governor. There, you learn leaderships skills, along with team skills. Sometimes, I didn't even realize that I was learning because I was having so much fun. Upon arriving there, I thought I was going to be an oddball, but actually, we were all oddballs. We became one big family. We became, and will continue to be, lifelong friends!

I attended MGS in 2000 and it was one of the best programs of that kind I had ever been through. Even other programs I have attended after MGS do not mean as much to me. The values for with MGS stands for make this program something special.
