Warren County’s Young Scholars Institute had another successful year with over 300 students participating over the two-week event.Directors Jimmy Haley and Carol Neal said they were pleased with the response to the program, which is in its 28th year.“We had 260 the first week and 300 the second week,” Haley said. “Our first week for fifth grade was 4-H week so we were low on fifth-graders that week, but we had a really strong turnout for the second week.”The age range includes students going into second grade up to students going into ninth grade.“That’s the way we’ve always done it,” Haley said. “We divide into five groups and do activities that are age-appropriate and it’s always worked well.”Haley says he has been involved since the inception.“I’ve been here the whole time,” Haley said.
