PADUCAH, KY - Anna Grace McGee, a senior at Paducah Tilghman High School, has been invited to be one of only 90 outstanding student artists and scholars from across the country to attend Princeton University's Creative Arts and Humanities Symposium.

The symposium, which runs October 13-15, gives high school students an opportunity to explore the arts and humanities in a college environment. McGee was nominated by administrators at Paducah Tilghman and invited to attend by Princeton's Dean of Admissions.

The all-expenses-paid weekend allows prospective students to get a taste of a Princeton education while exploring dance, theater, film, music, writing, and visual arts at a university level. Participants will work closely with Princeton's accomplished professors in cross-disciplinary workshops and seminars.

Anna Grace McGee is a National Merit Commended Scholar and an AP Scholar with distinction. She is a member of PTHS Mock Trial and Academic Team. She is president of the National Honor Society and is Interact Club treasurer. She is a Governor's Scholars Program alumnus and a volunteer at Baptist Health. After graduation Anna Grace plans to attend a four year university and pursue a premedical course of study. Her parents are Laura and Raymond McGee.

McGee is the third student from Paducah Tilghman in three years to receive an invitation to Princeton's event. This is the program's 17th year.
