This week’s shout out goes to our Hot Springs School District as a business and community dedicated to our students. As most of you know, the HSSD was nominated for Large Business of the Year. Our leadership staff and other nominees for Woman of the Year (Mrs. Hughley) and Rising Star (Mr. Webb) attended the Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet last night on behalf of these nominations. While the HSSD did not win, I want to share with you a few excerpts from our application that we submitted following a nomination from our community to be among those honored. In my heart and mind, we are the winner every year of the most distinguished group that does nothing but give back to this community every single day, and I’m so proud of every one of you.


“Hot Springs School District is the second largest school district in Garland County, but is the most diverse school district with a larger ethnic diversity of students and staff than any other school. Our staff and students take great pride in representing and being part of such a diverse community that is unified and strong because of our differences and commitment to embracing everyone from all backgrounds.”

“Hot Springs School District is proud to serve the Garland County community.  We truly are the ‘Heart of Hot Springs’. Established in 1881, the District has a longstanding role in this community.  We look forward to continuously impacting students, families, and the community we serve.”

“Across the district, we employ 445 staff members, making us one of the top ten employers in Garland County. We are dedicated to maintaining a supportive, positive, and dynamic work environment for our staff and state-of-the-art campuses across the district to facilitate progress and productivity for all students and staff.”


I also want to shout out to our HSSD leadership team. The photos below depict principals and administrative staff participating in small groups to develop specific, short vision statements about priorities for the educational experience that we offer students, during our leadership meeting on Monday. I show this to you to remind you that the work we ask of you in focusing on the planning and implementation of Professional Learning Communities also takes places within your district leadership team. We believe in the positive impact that this initiative can make on our school and students, and we practice it at every level of leadership and training.


Trojan ‘Good Things’ is a weekly shout out from #HSSD Superintendent Dr. Stephanie Nehus to those individuals in our school community who are doing amazing things! It is her goal to communicate all the positives happening in #HSSD. If you have any special events happening in your classes or buildings or if you know of someone we need to give a shout out to, please complete the form at
