January, 2016

The five Beebe School Board members possess what seems to be the perfect combination of knowledge and various skills that contribute to a very collaborative team. Those individual skills, combined with the desire to create the best possible learning environment and success for every student, makes the Beebe School Board a very effective and supportive group. In all the years dealing with this board, I can honestly say, they truly are concerned about students and staff. The question, “How will this affect students,” is always at the forefront of each and every decision they make. The vision adopted by the board is very fitting, “The Beebe School Community, Preparing Every Student for Success!”

As a former McRae School Board Member, Mr. Davis played a large part in the districts’ annexation. With a business background, Mr. Davis is often able to give the business perspective with decisions and purchases. He is also very technology minded and thinks progressively toward the District’s vision. Having three children attend the District has given him a well-rounded, district-level perspective from pre-K – twelfth grade. He is always interested in progress, and especially academic success by providing more opportunities for Beebe students.

Ms. Janet Hines is serving her second round as a school board member, with a total of nine years. She was on the Beebe School when the Beebe/ McRae annexation took place. Ms. Hines is a very compassionate individual who is concerned with the whole child. The Badger Food Pantry developed from an idea Ms. Hines presented to the board. She is a lifelong Beebe area resident who graduated from the Beebe School District. Ms. Hines’ older children progressed through the district several years ago, and now, her three youngest children are attending Beebe. Ms. Hines is a caring individual who looks for ways to promote and plan for the District’s future growth. Her common sense and business

background definitely provide good direction and stability for the future.
