The Talented and Gifted Program was initiated by Walters State Community College in April of 1982. The program's inception was the result of a request by the Superintendent of Cocke County Schools proposing that Walters State Community College design an instructional program to provide enrichment activities geared toward gifted students in the upper East Tennessee area.
Now in its 40th year, T.A.G. 2022 — with a projected enrollment of up to 500 students from 13 area public school systems, private schools and home school cooperatives — consists of approximately 35 programs offered multiple times which have been designed to stimulate and challenge East Tennessee’s gifted students from the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grades. The classes are instructed by area experts and will be conducted in such a manner as to encourage student participation in hands-on activities, as well as verbal participation.
The staff of the Division of Workforce Training at Walters State Community College, along with T.A.G. 2022 faculty members, is pleased to have the opportunity present this program on an annual basis.
