AR School Board Recognition Month 2020

Posted on 01/07/2020

Cabot Public Schools is proud to honor our dedicated Cabot School Board members during Arkansas School Board Recognition Month.  

More than 1,500 school board members serve students in districts across Arkansas. Governor Asa Hutchinson and the State Board of Education have officially declared the month of January as School Board Recognition Month.

Arkansas school board members are elected school leaders. Under state law they are empowered to set policy for their district, hire and evaluate the superintendent, oversee district finances, approve the budget, and determine the vision and mission of the district.

This month-long observance is an excellent opportunity to show our appreciation to our board members who give countless hours of their time to ensure the success of our students. 

The Cabot School Board consists of seven outstanding community leaders.

Marvin Jones, President

Mr. Jones has three kids and five grandchildren associated with the Cabot School District. He is a graduate of Baker University Graduate School of Business with a BBA and MBA.

Mr. Jones is President of MWJ Enterprises, Inc., serves as an adjunct professor of economics at ASU, and attends New Life Church in Cabot.

Brian Evans, Vice President

Mr. Evans and his wife, Melissa, have two children that attend Cabot schools. Mr. Evans, a native of McCrory, Arkansas, is the President and CEO of L&L Freight Services, Inc. He is a State Representative and serves District 43. He is also a board member of the Cabot Panther Foundation and serves on the Executive Committee of the Transportation Intermediaries Association. Mr. Evans and his family are active members of Faith Baptist Church.

Joe Trusty, Secretary

Mr. Trusty is a retired teacher of 34 years with 33 of those in the Cabot school system. He received his Music Education degree from Arkansas Tech University in Russellville in 1981. In 1997, he completed his Masters of Science in Education from the University of Central Arkansas.

Mrs. Owen and her family are members of Fellowship Bible Church in Cabot. When considering a location to establish their Orthodontic practice, they wanted a community with a strong public school system and a good church home. She feels extremely blessed to have found both.
