The Governor's School is a summer program for academically talented high school students held at Drew University in Madison and at Rutgers University's Piscataway campus.

Riess attended the school of Sciences at Drew in 1987 and was turned on to physics by Drew Professor James Supplee, the chair of university's Physics Department.

On Wednesday, Riess showed off his medal to students and that won him the Nobel Prize for physics in 2011, the newspaper said.
