It is my honor to be the new President of the National Association for Gifted Children for 2015 through 2017. NAGC is a very rich community of parents, teachers, administrators, counselors, psychologists, university personnel, and researchers. We not only serve this community, but they also serve our organization and our gifted children and youth through their commitment and passion.
I have been honored to serve and to work on behalf of gifted children for more than 30 years. I consider this not merely a profession, but also a calling.
