    I'm proud of the great employees we have in this district. It's truly amazing to see what everyone does to contribute to our success in academics, athletics, and arts. It would be hard to find another district in the nation as successful in all three areas.

    I'm proud of the fact we operate schools on the assumption that we are the best district in Arkansas. We set high goals, and being the best is what we realistically strive for.
