We celebrate School Board Recognition Month in January. Dr. Jeff Root represents Zone 4 in our community. He was inspired to be on the school board because he wanted to give back to his alma mater. Dr. Root is especially proud of Arkadelphia teachers for their dedication to students before, during, and after the pandemic. “It is challenging work, and I applaud those who accept the challenge and devote themselves to preparing students for the lives ahead of them. I know I owe a great debt of thanks to my APS teachers.” Dr. Root is the Dean of Education and Humanities at OBU. His wife Deborah is an OBU faculty member and Director of Assessment and Institutional Research. Their daughter, Abby Root Curry, is an AHS graduate and theatre instructor in Little Rock. She and her husband, Steven, are the proud parents of Dr. Root’s eight-month old granddaughter, Mary Katherine. Dr. Root has also been in the Badger Football broadcast booth for 35 years! We appreciate Dr. Jeff Root and his leadership on the Arkadelphia School Board! #BadgerPride

Ms. Regan Morehead's 6th Grade Art Rotation class recently studied textile art. The students enjoyed the opportunity to learn the basics of weaving and make their own creations. It is amazing to see what students are producing in our art classes!

Mrs. White is proud of the way we are all a big Badger family. “It is amazing how our community rallies around and constantly supports our teachers, administrators, and especially our students.” Gina and her husband, Rob, began their relationship at Goza back in their junior high days.
