The Gwinnett Alliance for Gifted Education announced recently that it will hold its 37th Annual Awards Ceremony at the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center in Buford on April 17. Current President Kathy Marks will preside at the ceremony.
Each Gwinnett County public school may select a student who has made the most of their experience in the gifted program, has made a positive impact on the learning experiences of others, and/or has served the school in significant ways. Each school will determine the criteria and process by which the student will be selected to receive the GAGE Student of the Year Award. Elementary students will be recognized at a session beginning at 6:15. Middle and high school students will be recognized beginning at 7:15. A reception for all award recipients, family and friends is planned for 6:45 to 7:15 p.m.
