Dann and Kathi Cann are providing annual scholarships for students from Grayson County to attend the Summer Program for Verbally and Mathematically Precocious Youth (VAMPY). VAMPY is sponsored by The Center for Gifted Studies at Western Kentucky University.

Chloe Lindsey, daughter of Josh and Salina Lindsey; and Alexis Briann Coon, daughter of David and Christina Coon; will receive $3,000 each as the 2015 recipients of the Cann scholarship.

VAMPY brings students from across the Untied States and abroad to Bowling Green to engage in both academic and social growth opportunities. VAMPY started in 1984 as the first cooperative program with Duke Talent Identification Program (TIP).

“VAMPY is a tradition that I am delighted to say will be offered annually to students in Grayson County,” said Julia Roberts, Professor of Gifted Education and Executive Director of The Center for Gifted Studies. “Of course, other young people are welcome to apply for VAMPY, too, and I hope they will!”
