Welcome Horace Mann Middle School Leading Ladies!!

Today is the first day for the Leading Ladies at Horace Mann Middle School in Little Rock! The program is led by Ms. Yvonne and Ms. Jill for the middle school ladies. The 8-week program will meet on Thursdays after school and cover everything from bullying, boys, academic development, and goal planning. We’ll be altering the mission and vision statement this weekend to reflect our new addition and future goals. We’re so excited to have you all join us! Good luck ladies!!!


We had a discussion on the importance of volunteerism before our Knock Out Hunger event!! Annnnnd… it was also #HogsCare week at the University of Arkansas! They shared some of their HogsCare goodies with us so we wanted to show that Hogs Care all the way in Jacksonville, AR!!! WOOOO PIG SOOIE!!
