Gilmore is the daughter of Jerlene and Elijah Gilmore. The Arkansas Governor's School is an intensive four-week summer program held on the Hendrix campus for the state's most gifted and highest achieving students.
"With the loss of an older brother(Michael "Rudy" Gilmore), I have became more ambitious about my future goal to pursue a career in Business Administration & Management. . . . I think that AGS will be a great experience for me as I try to improve my skills in order to become a C.E.O of my own fashion company." Gilmore shared with the Inside Scoop.
Congratulations to Kaneshia.
