PrepMe CEO Karan Goel, along with other community partners, announced recently the donation of an ACT and SAT online test preparation program to more than 1,000 Governor's Scholars Program participants, including nine from Taylor County.

Through customized and affordable test preparation, PrepMe is dedicated to providing high-impact results to students and their families. The team develops challenging course material for the SAT, PSAT and ACT. PrepMe is uniquely positioned to help students maximize test scores through a technological platform that not only teaches strategies, but also improves reading, writing and mathematical skills.

"The rising cost of education across the United States is a growing concern for many students entering college and their families," Goel said. "The services we provide assist students in exceeding performance goals that may increase the amount of scholarship awards they could earn, relieving a portion of the financial burden. We hope that each student utilizes the program and experiences our method for proven success."

This year's Governor's Scholars Program participants from Taylor County and Campbellsville high schools include: Maci Lakin Christie, Samantha Renae Clark, Hannah Grey Ellis, Shelby Laken Ewing, Andrew Christian Ford, Meredith Blaine Haley, Olivia Morgan Rose, Tyler James Thomas and Auburn Elizabeth Wigginton.

The Governor's Scholars Program was developed in 1983 to enhance the next generation of civic and economic leaders. Participants are selected through a highly competitive application process similar to prestigious colleges and universities. This year, more than 1,000 students were hosted by Bellarmine University, Morehead State University and Centre College.

The donation of the PrepMe online test preparation courses was also made possible through community and corporate sponsors.
