Hackett GT Program Wins Award



Hackett Gifted and Talented Program Named Best in State

The Hackett Schools Gifted and Talented Education program was recently named the best program of its kind in Arkansas.  The Arkansas Governor’s Advisory Council for Gifted and Talented Education selected the Hackett School District to receive the Act. 56 award this year, for the most outstanding Gifted and Talented Education program in Arkansas, in schools of less than 1000 students.  

The award comes with $3000 to be used for the Gifted and Talented Education program at Hackett.

Hackett Gifted and Talented Education Coordinator Gayla Edwards accepted the award at the annual AGATE (Arkansans for Gifted and Talented Education) conference awards luncheon in Hot Springs.

Ms. Edwards stated:

 “We have outstanding Gifted and Talented Education programs in our  school districts across Arkansas. I am proud to teach Gifted and Talented Education in Arkansas, and honored to accept this award for the Hackett School District.

This achievement is due to support from school administration, teachers, all staff, students, parents, and community members. Thank you for your support for our school!”
