BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- It has been on the Washington Post's list of elite schools for eight straight years! And ranked by Newsweek as the number one public high school in the nation three years in a row!
It's the Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science in Kentucky, and it's right here in Bowling Green at Western Kentucky University.
The Gatton Academy is the brainchild of its executive director, Dr. Julia Link Roberts, who is justifiably proud of its success. She is Gene's guest in tonight's edition of Sunday Conversations with Gene Birk.
Although WKU President Gary Ransdell tried to shield the Gatton Academy from Governor Matt Bevin's budget cuts this year, the academy's enrollment will be cut by twelve students next year.
