The 2016 Freshmen Junior High Volleyball team won the Central Arkansas Junior High Conference Championship and the conference tournament.

This team was 26-4-2 overall and 16-1 in conference play.  The Benton Volleyball program is a great source of pride for our school and community as it continues to be one of the best programs in the state. Congratulations to the team and Coach Michelle Shoppach!

After the school board election in September, the first order of business was to reorganize by electing new officers. They are Jonathan Woolbright, President; Jarrod Hambric, Vice President; and Jeff Morrow, Secretary.

Heath Nix was recognized for his service as board president. Previously, he had spent one year as secretary and another as vice president. Nix has served five years on the board and was reelected for a second five-year term that began in September. He has been a strong leader on the board as the district has met many changes and challenges. Thanks to Mr. Nix for his willingness to serve.

Jasen Kelly was recently presented the Blue Spirit Award at the BGCA Southwest Leadership Conference.  Only one individual wins this award.  We at Benton School District recognize Jasen's dedication to the youth of our community and want to acknowledge a job well done.

October is National Principals Month and we want to take this opportunity to recognize all of the Benton School District’s outstanding principals and assistant principals. It is through their hard work, dedication, and commitment that our students and staff are able to excel in many ways. With their leadership and high expectations, our schools have achieved very high levels of success both academically and through extracurricular activities. We are so appreciative to these men and women for the roles that they play in helping our students, staff, and district to be among the best in the state.
