Central Office received a call from Tammy Tackett, wife of Lonsdale Fire Chief Eddie Tackett, praising the actions of one of our Bus Drivers. On Nov. 13th, a BJH student was involved in ATV accident. Bus Driver Carol Burrow, a 22 year employee, was the first on the scene. With the assistance of BJH student, Carson Totten, they were able to stop the bleeding and move the ATV from the road. They stayed with the student until First Responders arrived. The student was taken the Children’s Hospital where he received 40 stitches. We would like to present this Panther Pride Award to Carol and Carson for their actions.

Benton High School received a $12,500 grant from Entergy to assist in the implementation of its Jobs for Arkansas Graduates (JAG) program. Arch Ford Hub will also receive an additional $12,500 grant from the Department of Workforce Services-Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) funds to be used for students in our alternative learning environment. The funds can be used to purchase equipment, expanded technology, approved curriculum items, paid student internships, and planned field trips related to job and educational placement.
