Arkansas teachers and librarians participating in the Arkansas Declaration of Learning Program were honored June 29 in a program at the Clinton School of Public Service.

The event was a way to highlight the work and successes of the teachers. Over the last year, through a partnership with federal, state and local agencies and organizations, the participants used historic objects, works of art and primary sources to create innovative lesson plans in the fields of art, English language arts and social studies.

Lena Moore, deputy executive director of the Clinton Foundation, told the educators she was grateful to them for being fully engaged and believing in the program that brings history to life and encourages civic engagement. Gov. Asa Hutchinson was the keynote speaker.

This is the third year for the yearlong program. The 26 participants in this class were selected from 100 applicants.
