The Victoria Fellows

The Victoria Fellows were founded in 2011 thanks to a gift from Linda and John Kelly and their daughter, Victoria, a longtime volunteer at The Center. Their goal was to establish an initiative to build an advocacy group for young people who are gifted and talented in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The resulting Victoria Fellows is composed of decision-makers from throughout Kentucky who meet twice a year to listen to speakers, network, and share ideas.

Past speakers have discussed the excellence gap, how to revamp gifted and talented programming, acceleration, and giftedness in creativity. John Kelly believes the benefits of the program are readily apparent: “Being able to put together the most influential, engaged, and supportive educators across the state to work as advocates who recognize the need for resources for gifted and talented students is very important, especially in a state like Kentucky.”
