GCS Students Featured in National Publication

Local GCS students are featured in an article titled, Parenting for High Potential in a publication by the National Association for Gifted Children. The community is beyond proud of these talented and dynamic students for lending their voices to help us understand their educational experiences as students from underrepresented populations.

The students participated in a panel at the 2020 NC Association for the Gifted and Talented (NCAGT) state conference. The panel was entitled, Student Voices:  The Lived Experiences of Gifted.  The discussion provided an opportunity for educators in gifted education to hear the voices of students from underrepresented student groups and to teach us how we have the responsibility to recognize that giftedness can be found in all student groups.
