Susannah Wood, associate professor in rehabilitation and counselor education in the University of Iowa College of Education, has won the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented’s Legacy Book Award in the scholar category.

Wood received the Legacy Book Award for her publication Serving Gifted Students in Rural Setting (Prufrock Press, 2015), which she co-edited with Tamra Stambaugh of Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. The scholar category of the TAGT award recognizes work that focuses on the latest gifted- and G/T-education research intended to inform graduate students and advanced educators. 

Serving Gifted Students in Rural Setting provides a framework for bridging gifted education with rural classrooms. After giving an overview of the current state of rural education, the publication then provides practical strategies and models for best serving gifted students at rural schools.

Wood’s award will be announced at the TAGT conference in December in San Antonio, Texas.
