The Center’s 30th anniversary celebration began at the National Corvette Museum with a brunch attended by the VAMPY campers and other friends of The Center. Later in the afternoon friends of The Center gathered on the South Lawn of the main WKU campus for an afternoon of friends, food and fun.
It was a lovely afternoon filled with music from Jon Crosby’s band, a hot air balloon supplied by the Hitron family, art, a delicious barbeque dinner and all sorts of games and fun on the grounds. After President Ransdell and Dr. Julia Roberts shared a few words of welcome, a group of alumnus, lead by Wake Norris, announced an alumni lead endowment for The Center. Everyone hopes that The Center for Gifted Studies leads gifted students, their parents and educators to many more years of educational opportunities. Thanks to The Center’s Board Advisor Bob Pitchford for taking pictures and sharing them with us.
