Sixth-grader Justin Martin, 12, who has cerebral palsy but is also gifted, has won one of CEC's "Yes I Can!" arts awards for 2009. "I have lots of wonderful students. It is unbelievable what he can do," said Justin's gifted teacher, Jeanne Melvin. "He is not only a gifted poet, he's thoughtful. He is interested in social justice. ... He's always thinking. He deserves everything he's earned, every award he can get."
