Black Gifted Students- APPLY Today for the 2016 Jenkins Scholar Award

Three years ago, a committed team of African American Scholars determined that it was important for our nation to recognize and honor the legacy of Dr. Martin D. Jenkins. Dr. Jenkins was the first scholar to research and publish case studies of highly intelligent Black students in several urban areas across the nation in the early 20th century. 

One of Dr. Jenkins' study, the "Case of B" described a young Black girl with a measured IQ of 200. This remarkable case study was published with the help of his mentor, Dr. Paul Witty and made history. For the first time, a Black scholar was able to document his research and have this work published and disseminated widely. For more information about Dr. Jenkins' work, see: Profile of Dr. Martin D. Jenkins

This year, at the 2016, National Association for Gifted Children Convention, we will honor a third group of remarkable scholars whose life story is similar to that of students chronicled by Dr. Jenkins early in the 1930s and 40s. These students (and their families) like others in 2014 and 2015 will be invited to attend a special session of the NAGC Convention in Orlando and share their achievements and visions for their future. 

We are currently seeking students to apply for the 2016 Jenkins Scholar Award Project. The application and all supporting materials can be located at: 2016 Jenkins Scholar Award Application

All applications will be reviewed by a selected set of Gifted Education Scholars from across the nation. 

We are also seeking donations to support the Scholars Project, please go to the following link:

  6. If you’re having a hard time losing weight, get a proper thyroid assessment. Most people need a test that goes above the standard medical thyroid profile. A standard thyroid test reads as ‘normal’ in 80 percent of overweight individuals, which is incorrect. A proper thyroid assessment includes checking eight different parameters of thyroid function and comparing them to optimal, not normal, values. Evaluated this way, over 80 percent of overweight individuals will actually be properly identified as being hypothyroid. This is a key contributor to overweight.” —Kyrin Dunston
