Twelve students will participate in the University of Arkansas – Fort Smith’s Chancellor’s Leadership Council scholarship program during the 2017-18 school year, a highly competitive program for students demonstrating leadership capabilities and strong academic performance.
Fittingly, it was Tyler William’s high school English teacher who showed Williams the impact he could have as an educator. “Growing up in a poor rural school district, he invested heavily in every student,” Williams said. “He believed in every one of us, no matter how much resistance he met. That was truly an inspiration, and I wanted to be that for someone else.” Now, after graduating from the University of Arkansas – Fort Smith this spring, the Hartford native will have the opportunity to do just that after earning a teaching position in Newtok, Alaska, where he will teach math to Yupik, which are indigenous Alaskan natives.
