Dr. Butler with Graham High School Student holding certificate and flowers announcing Governor School selection

Sanyah Carter got quite the surprise Thursday morning when ABSS Superintendent Dr. Dain Butler walked in her classroom announcing that she was his "Superintendent's Choice" for the 2023 Governor's School.   

Carter, who is a junior at Graham High School, will be attending this summer's Governor's School for Natural Sciences.  

"I'm really proud of the work you have done here at Graham and know you will represent us well," Butler said.  

Carter's family was also in attendance for the surprise announcement.
