AZ School Superintendent Diane Douglas

Sedona AZ (July 14, 2017)Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas today announced the hiring of Lindsay Hudson as the Arizona Department of Education’s (ADE’s) new Director of the Empowerment Scholarship Account (ESA)  program. Hudson has spent the majority of her professional career working in finance for Fortune 500 companies, joining the Department after most recently serving as an Operations Project Manager for Bank of America.

“I am excited to work with Lindsay to ensure that the Department manages this program as efficiently as possible,” said Superintendent Douglas. “With the amount of attention the program received this past legislative session, ADE is expecting the number of applications to increase as more eligibility categories are opened up. I extend a warm welcome to Lindsay, whose background and experience will prove to be invaluable assets to the program as it continues to expand.”

At Bank of America, Hudson generated $338 million in customer assistance funds, while also managing database implementation for the Hardest Hit Fund and Emergency Homeowner Loan programs. Before her tenure at Bank of America, Hudson was responsible for financial reporting, revenue analysis and forecasting for Honeywell Corporate and Honeywell Aerospace.

The announcement of a new ESA Director comes on the heels of an increased staffing effort by ADE designed to bolster the program’s management and oversight and deliver excellent service to parents and students. In addition to Hudson, ESA is in the process of hiring several new program specialists to bring its total number of full-time employees to 11.

More information on the ESA program, including student eligibility details, is available at www.azed.gov/esa.

    2017-2018 Cherokee County School Anti-Litter Competition

    The North Carolina Litter-Free Coalition is encouraging all Cherokee County Elementary, Middle and High Schools to submit information about their efforts to teach their students about the negative effects of highway and community litter and how it affects the image of our communities and our economy.

    The 2017-2018 competition will recognize the first, second and third place bragging rights (no prizes) for our Elementary, Middle and High Schools. Each school wishing to be part of this anti-litter competition is required to mail (4) four copies of their submission and an email copy of their submission to the North Carolina Litter-Free Coalition no later than Friday, June 29, 2018. Each school is to grant permission to the NCLFC to post the results of this contest on our Facebook page and to share it with media organizations wishing to report on your efforts.

    We would like each school to respond to each of these (7) seven categories with the highest point scores noted after each category:

    A) Contest format: All contestant entries are to highlight their school logos and contact information (principal’s name, school phone number, webpage name, Facebook page, etc.) that would help someone to research, reach out to, and contact their school. All submissions are to be formatted so that all information can be easily printed out, including photographs. Make your submission easy to share with others. (20 points)

    B) Who are the students and teachers that are involved in your anti-littering efforts (list of their names)? (20 points)

    C) What is your school doing to convince your students that those that litter have a negative effect on the image and economy of Cherokee County? (20 points)

    D) Who do your students think benefit from their efforts and how do they benefit? (20 points)

    E) Who are your students and teachers inviting to join them in their effort to discuss and reduce litter? How do you encourage spectators at your sporting events to not litter? (20 points)

    F) Schools are encouraged to include (5) five photographs (one group and four action photos) with their submission, a picture is worth a 1000 words. All photos sent to the NCLFC and the media should be at least 300 DPI. Do not, under any circumstances, embed any photo within a Word document, etc. In addition, don’t send your photo via Facebook or Twitter, simply email the photos as raw images, and we’ll do the rest. No Polaroid images, computer printouts of photos, etc. For best quality, start right at the source. (20 points)

    G) Responses to the attached nine (9) questions “Questions for Campus Beautification Clubs-Cherokee County Schools”. Submit at least responses from 5 students answering these questions. (45 points)
