The International Headquarters of The World Council for Gifted and Talented Children moved to Western Kentucky University (WKU) in Bowling Green, Kentucky on January 1, 2011. It joins The Center for Gifted Studies at WKU which is celebrating its 35th anniversary. A generous gift from Dixie and Pete Mahurin of Bowling Green made the move possible. In the last decade Bowling Green has experienced tremendous population growth and is home to people from around the world. It is Kentucky’s third largest city and centrally located within a day’s travel of nearly 60 percent of the U.S. population. Bowling Green is located approximately one hour north of Nashville, TN and is easily accessible by the Nashville International Airport (BNA) and a regional airport for smaller aircraft.
The office of the World Council is located in the new $35 million College of Education and Behavioral Sciences building on the WKU campus which was named for WKU’s ninth president, Gary A. Ransdell. The World Council offices are located in a beautiful three-room suite. Thanks to the generosity of Lexmark International, the office is equipped with an integrated high-end printer, copier, and scanner. Sam Moore, a member of the Advisory Board of The Center for Gifted Studies made that gift possible.
