EHS juniors Nikke Gamble and Cadence Payne are best friends, and self-proclaimed hallway royalty. But this summer, the BFFs will split up for five weeks.
Both earned their way into the 2011 Governor’s Scholars program, but want to go to different schools, as did fellow junior Rachel Metcalfe.
Payne wants to check out Louisville’s Bellarmine University because of its photography curriculum and urban vitality.
Gamble leans more towards the rural splendor and the academia of Centre College in Danville.
