Today's Midday guest was Frances Karnes from the Southern Miss Center for Gifted Studies.
Karnes spoke about a conference of career exploration for girls as well as the Saturday gifted studies program.
The conference will take place at the USM Liberal arts building from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and will feature sessions on various career options for girls. According to Karnes, it is best to pre-register for the conference, and for girls to bring an adult with them such as their mother or grandmother.
The Saturday gifted studies program begins January 18th for children ranging from Pre-K to 12th grade.
