Sarah Coomer, the gifted and talented coordinator for Bullitt County Schools, has been named a director of the Kentucky Association of Gifted Education Advisory Board. She joins the 20-member board that serves as an advocate and liaison for gifted and talented children within their district and across Kentucky.

Coomer has worked with district staff to offer weekly elementary camps in middle schools where students participate in accelerated units of challenging content, such as genetics, economics, physics and ancient civilizations. Other district initiatives include Saturday sessions in which gifted students can focus on one of four themes and a summer musical that helped promote the talents of gifted performing arts students.
