More than 550 children, grades one to seven, participated in Fall Super Saturdays sponsored by The Center for Gifted Studies at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green. 

The 39 hands-on, minds-on enrichment classes encouraged children to explore their interests in a challenging, yet nurturing environment. Children from 49 school districts in Kentucky (plus children from Indiana and Tennessee) attended the two-and-a-half-hour classes for four Saturdays in November. Hundreds of parents attended the Parent Seminars to learn more about the needs of their children.

Participants included Nate Risner, son of Daniel and Tasha Risner of Buffalo and student at Caverna; Melika Merard, daughter of Rachelle and David Walsh of Hodgenville; Jacob Laslie, son of Jay and Melinda Laslie of Magnolia and student at Green County; Austin Skaggs, son of Norma and Troy Sherrard of Mt. Sherman; and Skyler Hornback of Sonora and student at Abraham Lincoln Elementary School.
