Dana Haney of the Adult Education Center presented Amy Sherrill, Interim Executive Director of the Next Step Day Room with three boxes of warm weather items collected by our students and staff to be donated to their clients. Thanks to Dana for her creativity and for setting up our tree! 


The Next Step Day Room serves the area homeless with day programming, and has also been a leader in providing safe, supportive housing through the Gabriel House for men, the Esther Home for women and women with children, and the Buddy Smith Home for veterans facing homelessness.

Santa stopped by this morning to visit with the good girls and boys in our Bright Start Early Learning Center. Thanks to our Junior League of Fort Smith volunteers for helping put on a great Christmas party for our kids. 

Help us decorate our tree with warm weather items to be donated to the clients of the Next Step Day Room. Bring gloves, hats, scarves, mittens, or socks and pin them to the tree!

Our December Student of the Month is Chester Hinkle. After 26 years of service and retirement from Coke and 11 years at Southern Steel and Wire, Chester found himself at the adult education center in pursuit of his GED.  He is the second oldest of eight children and has been married to his wife, Shirley, for 42 years.  They have one daughter and one grandson (the joy of grandpa’s life). 

Chester was part of the last class of Lincoln High School in 1966.  He walked onto the basketball team at Westark Community College before being drafted.  He served two years of active duty, in which 18 months were in Korea on the DMZ.  Chester is an inspiration to everyone who knows him.  He encourages everyone and is always willing to help others.  After receiving his GED at the age of 64, Chester is thinking about pursuing a new career; teaching math is at the top of his list.  Chester definitely possesses the qualities needed to become an excellent teacher.  Chester, we wish you the best and believe you will be very successful in the career path you choose.
