On Friday, Sept. 27, the Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities will celebrate its 20th anniversary by honoring founder Virginia Uldrick. Uldrick was a visionary leader for the Greenville arts community and saw the first 126 students of the Governor’s School enter its doors in 1999.
The tuition-free, residential high school program for artistically minded students was the first of its kind in the country. Twenty years later, the Governor’s School continues to provide arts education opportunities for students throughout South Carolina. The school also strengthens artistic communities and provides resources for teachers throughout the state.
