A special story-time held March 27 by Little Learners, Big Ideas (a special project by The Center for Gifted Studies) gave little learners an opportunity to partake in a variety of interactive activities all centered around the book “Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons.” The event was sponsored by Barnes and Noble, Warren County Public Library and Chic-Fil-A.
Captivating speakers from a variety of industries and backgrounds spoke on topics related to the theme of “Ideas, Innovation, Invention” during IdeaFestival Bowling Green March 20 at the Downing Student Union at WKU.
Over 60 gifted students, their parents and teachers filled Bowling Green City Hall Feb. 12 to celebrate Gifted Education Month.
Bowling Green Mayor Bruce Wilkerson and Warren County Judge Executive Mike Buchanon signed a joint proclamation recognizing February as Gifted Education Month and noted the importance of challenging students to reach for greater heights. The proclamation called for an increase in public awareness regarding the unique educational, social and emotional needs of gifted and talented students. It also pointed to addressing the needs of all students as vital to the economic future of the region.
The ceremony was organized by The Center for Gifted Studies, which has been serving gifted children, their educators and parents for over 30 years. Julia Roberts, The Center’s executive director, was thrilled with the show of support for gifted education.
“Having City Hall filled with children from the Bowling Green Independent and the Warren County schools made the proclamation signing by Mayor Wilkerson and Judge Executive Buchanon quite special,” she said. “Staff at The Center for Gifted Studies at WKU are pleased to celebrate Gifted Education Month in Kentucky throughout February.”
