School Board is ‘Embracing Success’

The Pulaski County School Board recognized close to 30 individuals who have played a role in an initiative called "Embracing Success" through the special education departments and the Parent Resource Center of the Pulaski County Public School system.
Through "Embracing Success," volunteers worked with students in the school system in preparation for the Standards of Learning tests.
Because many students miss passing their SOL tests by just a few points, this project was initiated to ensure that students with disabilities would exceed the pass level. The Parent Resource Center, led by Martha Biggar, created drill cards from released SOL tests as far back as 2000.
Community members and personnel from the school system were then invited to be a part of the program by offering the gift of their time to help these students. The volunteers drilled the students on key concepts and demonstrated and practiced test taking strategies.
The following individuals were recognized for their dedication and commitment to the Embracing Success initiative: Barbara Barlow, Maggie Holliman, Dan Butler, Cindy Wenrich, Ann Benson, Martha Biggar, Steve Hale, Sandy Williams, Barbara Lawson, Connie Paul, Donna Hicks, Yvonne Quesenberry, Janet Jonas, Debbie Hodges, Bonnie Quesenberry, John Wenrich, Tonya Freeman, Bridget Parsons, Nydia Meredith, Angela Whitesell, Ronnie Coake, Renee Schuyler, Anthony Akers, Jackie Myal, Linda Hill, Imogene Adkins, Debbie Rolen and Stacey Heller.
