Parent's Night Out
Kelly & Cortney Carlson have championed the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement in Bentonville from day one and are co-chairs of Choose Love 2022. This husband and wife team rolled up their sleeves when we started planning in April, and they've been in the trenches ever since. Kelly is vice president of the Bentonville Schools Board of Education and Cortney is employed with Walmart. You want to know what really motivates them though? It's their girls. Julianna and Caroline are why they Choose Love. Earlier in the year, Caroline, who is seven and a half (the half is important, she says) brought her piggy bank money to Cortney. She said it was her contribution to our big event on November 9. You can bet this will be the biggest and best Choose Love celebration yet. Make plans now to be there. #whereexcellencelives

We the people are loving this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a rare, original print of the U.S. Constitution made possible by Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. Bentonville High School civics students toured the exhibit with their teacher Michael Eaves earlier this week. Original prints of the Declaration of Independence, the proposed Bill of Rights and the Articles of Confederation can be viewed until January 2. The exhibit is free and absolutely worth your time. #whereexcellencelives

You wanna put on a clinic...you call up the best. WNBA Hall of Famer Jackie Stiles showed the ladies' basketball team at Lincoln Jr High how it's done recently. Jackie encouraged the ladies of Lincoln to live their dreams on and off the court. In the 2001 WNBA draft, Stiles was selected fourth overall by the Portland Fire and was later voted the Rookie of the Year #whereexcellencelives

Back in May, we asked our teachers to take a picture of themselves celebrating the Choose Love Movement over their summer break. We got back some incredible images but one stood out. Deb Hight is a teacher at Washington Junior High School. Her daughter is battling cancer right now, but the mother-daughter duo still took a moment to Choose Love outside of their cancer clinic. The reality is this life can be tough. But so are you. Live each moment with courage, compassion for others, offer forgiveness and show gratitude. The Choose Love formula is a game changer. We plan to share more pictures like these leading up to Choose Love Day in Bentonville on November 9. #whereexcellencelives

Can you see yourself doing this? That's the question Bentonville High School students were able to explore today thanks to a fully loaded career technical learning semi-truck. Through virtual reality headsets, students explored careers in transportation, mechanics, construction, welding and robotics. The campaign is sponsored by Be Pro Be Proud to introduce high school students to meaningful careers they can begin immediately after high school. #whereexcellencelives

Jenny Sorey founded Hub of HOPE in 2016. Before starting her organization, Jen served the vulnerable and oppressed through the work of various organizations both internationally and domestically. Jen heard the words "modern slavery" and "human trafficking" for the first time in 2011 and realized most of the individuals she had served throughout her life had been vulnerable and at a high risk of becoming victims of human trafficking. Please grab lunch and join us TOMORROW for this critically important conversation. Human trafficking is absolutely an issue in Northwest Arkansas, and we must protect our children. #whereexcellencelives
