Additionally in the newsletter, the new Executive Director, Dr. Tracy Cross, introduces himself and briefly states some of his future goals for the Center. This issue contains the following articles: (1) Serving the Needs of Highly and Profoundly Gifted Children: An Interview with Linda Silverman (Suzanna E.
