High school seniors in the Little Rock School District accepted more than $19 million in scholarships this year, according to the district's high school principals and counselors. This figure is for scholarships actually accepted by students, not simply offered to them. The Class of 2011 broke last year's record of $17,338,239 with a grand total of $19,610,527. Little Rock Central High School topped the list with $9,527,131 in scholarship money accepted; Parkview Arts/Science Magnet High School followed with $4,614,876; Hall High School students accepted $3,000,467 in scholarships; students at McClellan Magnet High School accepted scholarships worth $1,360,629; and J.A. Fair Magnet High School students earned $1,107,424 in scholarship money.
As demonstrated at the recent Academic Signing Day where the district's top academic students "signed" with their chosen college or university in a ceremony at the Governor's Mansion, LRSD graduating seniors will attend some of the most respected colleges and universities in Arkansas and around the country, such as Princeton, University of Arkansas, UALR, Columbia, Hendrix, LSU, University of Georgia, MIT, Baylor University and Ouachita Baptist University.
Each of the LRSD's five high schools honored its top two students with the titles of valedictorian and salutatorian. If you've ever wondered exactly what a valedictorian is, it is a person -- usually the highest-ranking graduate -- who delivers the valedictory or "farewell" speech at a commencement ceremony. The salutatorian, usually the second-highest student in the class, delivers the welcoming or "salutatory" address at the ceremony.
Recognized as Little Rock Central High School’s valedictorian, David Z. Ye is the son of Wei-Wen and Jian-Hui Ye, and he is planning to attend the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Boshan Zhao, Central's salutatorian, is the son of Zhijun Lui and Wei Zhao. Boshan will attend Stanford University in the fall.
J.A. Fair Magnet High School's valedictorian is Austin Klais, son of Christopher and Nancy Klais. Austin has plans to attend Arkansas Tech University. Keny Patel is J.A. Fair's salutatorian. Keny is the son of Pravin and Meena Patel. He plans to attend the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
Jamena Cash was honored to be the valedictorian for Hall High School's Class of 2011. Jamena is the daughter of Katherine Cash-Woods. She will attend Oxford College at Emory University in the fall. Hall's salutatorian is Sheridan McKisick. She is the daughter of Sherrie and Eric McKisick. Sheridan has plans to attend Wellesley College.
Amber Thomas is valedictorian for McClellan Magnet High School's Class of 2011. The daughter of Larry and Beverly Thomas, Amber will attend Southern Arkansas University next year. McClellan's salutatorian is Ebony Shelton. She is the daughter of Tony and Johnetta Shelton, and she is planning to attend UALR in the fall.
Valedictorian honors at Parkview Arts/Science Magnet High School were awarded to Miriam Pearsall. She is the daughter of Tracy and Glory Pearsall, and she will attend Princeton University in the fall. Joshua Woods is Parkview's salutatorian. He is the son of Michael Woods and Sandra Stoudamire, and he will attend Columbia University.
The Little Rock School District wishes all students in the Class of 2011 best wishes and success in all future endeavors.

Governor Mike Beebe was present to address these top graduates. “You may well do what your heart and mind are set on,” said Governor Beebe, “However, recognize the fact a lot of things could change, and you need to be open-minded enough to embrace new opportunities or new directions in your life as they arise.”
This event also included welcoming greetings from Centennial Bank Board of Directors Member Barbara Graves, as well as remarks from State Senator Joyce Elliot, LRSD Superintendent Dr. Morris Holmes, and President of the Public Education Foundation of Little Rock, Joe Hilliard.

Literacy Night Mardi Gras Style at McClellen High School saw over three hundred parents and students gathered for an evening full of fun, great food, and most of all, learning. A carnival atmosphere was in play as participants played word games such as “Literacy Password” and “Literacy Jeopardy,” which challenged their critical thinking skills. Literacy test-taking strategies and social studies content strategies (included in other rotation stations) helped students and parents with the Password and Jeopardy areas.
“When we sat in the bleachers Ms. Ivy got really excited about giving us ways to prepare for tests. It made me feel like she was the coach and we were the team getting ready to go out and win,” said senior Maria Hurtado. One of the big hits of the night was the “Literacy Cakewalk,” which gave students the opportunity to share their knowledge with others.
Zydeco music played while students walked around a large square until the music stopped. The winners could not get their cake until they displayed a bit of their literacy understanding. “Literary terms are a big part of the ACTAAP, so when you combine cake with information, that makes a connection. Knowledge is a piece of cake,” said senior Michael Day. Freshman Camille Cornice commented, “I enjoyed the interactive experience of the different stations with games and prizes. It made the learning aspect that much more fun.” The event was well-organized and creative, and it was a learning experience, both academically and culturally. As McClellan’s Literacy Coach Shirley Ferguson said, “It [Literacy Night] was a magnificent success. The parents and students enjoyed rotating through the various game and strategy centers. They raved over the delicious Cajun cuisine. The entire event was a fun-filled, collaborative experience for the McClellan parents, students, faculty, and administrators.”
This is event brings awareness to the parents concerning the ACTAAP Literacy Exam, and it gets them on campus to meet their child's teachers. It also brings a better understanding of the English department and the curriculum their child is taking in a fun, non-threatening atmosphere. McClellan hopes this event will help motivate the students to do well on the Literacy Exams. It helps make learning fun.

Getting ready for college is first and foremost in the minds of some
high school students. Others, however, may not have the information to
know where to begin their college search or may lack the encouragement
they need to want to go to college.
The University of Arkansas
at Little Rock (UALR) helped out the students at McClellan High School
recently with its College Fair, which was held in the McClellan gym.
More than 30 UALR departments were present, giving students an
opportunity to receive valuable information such as how to navigate the
college admissions process, what to expect when entering college as a
freshman, how to apply for scholarships, areas of study and lots more.
These students now are able to make more informed decisions that will
positively impact their futures.
Some McClellan students applied for on-the-spot admissions and institutional scholarships. Cleveland James, UALR's Director of Recruitment, worked with the McClellan staff to organize the fair.

were presented with the incentive last year and this year other students
preparing for the test have began to inquire about it as well.
