Inner conflict and a desire to be free drive the main character’s quest to self-discovery. Riding Freedom is a fictionalized biography of Charlotte ‘Charley’ Parkhurst. Charlotte is raised in an orphanage where she is treated differently because she is a girl. She wants to train and ride horses, but in the mid-1800s, this was considered a man’s work. To solve this dilemma, Charlotte spends most of her life pretending to be a man. Through living as ‘Charley,’ Charlotte is able to find self-fulfillment in a career that was unavailable to her as a female.

COLLEGE OF WILLIAM & MARY

The Center for Gifted Education (CFGE) is a research and development center providing services to educators, policy makers, graduate students, researchers, and parents in support of the needs of gifted and talented individuals.

Located in Williamsburg, Virginia, the CFGE has established an international reputation for excellence in research, curriculum development, and service. Several major grants, including funding from the Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education Act, have provided significant support for the work of the Center. In 2012, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation awarded CFGE the funds needed for a summer residential camp for low income, high-ability children, for four consecutive years. In 2015, William & Mary alumni, Mike and Nancy Petters, through the Petters Family Foundation, provided additional financial support to the program. In 2016, the Petters Family Foundation has committed to  fully fund the program for the next four years. Camp Launch is only the beginning of the Center for Gifted Education’s goal to bring educational equality to all gifted students.
