Vince and Kathleen Berta
It is thanks to the generosity of Vince and Kathleen Berta that this event is free and open to the public. In 2001, the Bowling Green residents made a generous donation to The Center for Gifted Studies to establish The Berta Fund for Excellence. The Bertas realized that gifted children had needs that came from their strengths and meeting those needs required both parents and teachers. The Berta Fund for Excellence brings in experts in the field of education to conduct seminars and presentations designed specifically for the parents of gifted children. And because educating gifted students requires teachers as well as parents, The Berta Fund for Excellence also sponsors a professional development seminar for educators to learn how to better meet the needs of gifted young people in the classroom.
