Kimberly Alexander attended the University of Central Arkansas, where she received a Bachelor of Science in Education K-6. She currently teaches first grade at Hugh Goodwin. Mrs. Alexander’s older brother attended UCA, so she had already been hearing great things about the school when she went on her first visit. Once she experienced it for herself, she said “it felt like home.” When asked what made her time at UCA special, Mrs. Alexander spoke of the friendships she made. “One thing that made my experience special was the relationships I built through the mission trips I went on with the campus ministry Chi Alpha. While I was in college, I spent a summer at LIV Village, an orphanage in South Africa. After I graduated with my education degree, I went back to LIV and taught in the school for a year. " Thank you, Mrs. Alexander, for sharing about UCA! If you are interested in learning more about the University of Central Arkansas, visit https://uca.edu/.

Yesterday, the El Dorado School District Athletic Director, Phillip Lansdell, and Athletic Trainer, Morgan Atkins, presented Junction City High School and Strong-Hutting High School coaches with inflatable cooling tubs to be used to help prevent heat related illnesses in their athletes. Mrs. Morgan said, "This donation was made possible through the Korey Stringer Institute. The KSI mission is to provide research, education, advocacy and consultation to maximize performance, optimize safety and prevent sudden death for the athlete, warfighter and laborer. KSI reached out to Athletic Trainers in our state to help find schools without an Athletic Trainer to donate these cooling tubs to. Both schools were very appreciative of the donation." Thank you, Mrs. Morgan, for being an advocate for our students and all the students in our area! We are so blessed to have you on our ESD team!

For the last five years, the El Dorado School District, like many schools throughout the state, has held a waiver from the state of Arkansas that allows the district to hire applicants who hold a bachelor’s degree while they complete the teaching licensure requirements. During this time, ESD has hired 88 teachers through this program, 65% of them originally from South Arkansas. The waiver is renewed every five years. ESD would appreciate community feedback as we review our decision going forward. Please complete this form if you would like to submit your feedback on the impact of the waiver in our district. Thank you. https://bit.ly/WaiverFeedback
