Young Scholar, Program Featured in New Article

Davidson Young Scholar Linda Pistun was featured in this Inside NoVa article!

“A member of Mensa (the largest and oldest high-IQ society in the world) since she was 5, Linda was accepted as a Davidson Young Scholar in 2018, which limits membership to exceptionally and profoundly gifted children.”

“For mom Katie and dad Nick, who are both in law enforcement, providing Linda with what she needs to reach her full potential can sometimes be daunting. ‘Although Linda hasn’t been able to use her Davidson Young Scholars membership yet, we as parents have really benefited from it because there’s an online community where we can talk to other parents and ask for ideas,’ says Katie. ‘They also have a lot of resources to help parents of kids like Linda.’”
