Gift Will Establish Speakers Series at Gatton Academy
A twenty thousand dollar gift from AT&T will help to launch a speakers program at the Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science at WKU. Gatton Director Tim Gott says the program will benefit students and members of the general public, because the speeches will be held in locations that will allow members of the public and campus community to attend.
Dr. Julia Roberts is the Executive Director of the Center for Gifted Studies and the Carol Martin Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science. She says the program will encourage students at the Academy to learn about new developments in the fields of science, engineering , technology, and mathematics and to prepare for possible future career opportunities.
