End of Year District Staff Meeting 2016

Posted on 05/27/2016

Hundreds of teachers and staff were recognized for their hard work and dedication at the end of year district staff meeting Thursday. 


Representative Charlotte Douglas, Representative Tim Lemons, and Senator Eddie Joe Williams presented both a House of Representative and Senate Citation to teacher Laura Abbott. Mrs. Abbott is a dedicated advocate for domestic abuse victims and has worked tirelessly with legislators on five bills related to the prevention of domestic abuse. 

Mrs. Abbott is also a domestic abuse survivor and was the force behind Laura’s card, a Victim’s Rights Card recognized by the Arkansas Attorney General. Mrs. Abbott also serves on the Board of the Arkansas Commission on Child Abuse, Rape and Domestic Violence.
