Topics such as death, tragedy, and racism are explored in Sounder, a Newbery Medal Winner. Follow the story of an African-American sharecropping family living in the South during the late nineteenth century. The family has fallen on hard times, and the father goes out hunting every night with Sounder, a coon dog whose voice rings like music through the valley. One day the father is taken to jail and the boy’s life changes forever. During the course of the novel, Sounder and his new master, the boy, develop a close friendship and admiration for each other.

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.
