Dr. Dorothy Ann Sisk, founding member and long time supporter and contributor to the WCGTC, has generously donated two special World Conference scholarships to “passion, profession, and parents who inspire” in the name of her friend and longtime WCGTC colleague Edna McMillan. The $1000 scholarships were given to Jen Torbeck-Merril, the author of the popular online blog “laughingatchaos.com”, where she writes about her life as a 2E mom, and Mary St. George, who works as lead educator for GO- Gifted Online, an interactive online One Day School program in New Zealand. The scholarships will help defray their travel costs to the 20th World Conference in Louisville in August. Both Torbeck-Merril and St. George will present at the World Conference. Dr. Edna McMillan passed away in December 2012 and was an esteemed colleague, supporter, and member of the WCGTC. She served for over 30 years in various capacities as member, conference organizer, chair, delegate, EC member, and Vice President. The WCGTC is very grateful to Dr. Dorothy Ann Sisk for this opportunity to mark Edna’s memory in such a wonderful and fitting way.
