Craft Academy students participate in Gifted Education Month proclamation ceremony

 
Two students from the Craft Academy for Excellence in Science and Mathematics students participated in a virtual ceremony proclaiming February as Gifted Education Month in Kentucky.   

Senior Cameron Snowden from Breathitt County, the first Craft Academy student to be accepted to Harvard University, gave a speech about the importance of gifted education programs in Kentucky schools and how he has benefitted from such programs.   

Junior Duncan McGinnis, a native of Greenup, recently named to the Kentucky All-State Symphony as a viola player, performed a piece of music during the proclamation ceremony.   

The video was created by the Kentucky Association for Gifted Education (KAGE) to mark Gifted Education Month. KAGE is a non-profit volunteer group of parents, teachers, administrators, other educators, and all citizens interested in promoting appropriate educational opportunities for gifted and talented youth in Kentucky.
