The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) highly supports the education of America’s youth. The VFW identifies and recognizes America’s best educators who instill a sense of national pride in students, teach citizen education topics, and promote America’s history and traditions effectively including Flag etiquette and patriotism.
Clarice Long, elementary dean of students and math interventionist, was recognized by the local VFW as the Teacher of the Year. Mrs. Long was presented a certificate, $100, an American flag, and an Arkansas flag for the school at a ceremony held last week at the Union County Court House.
Congratulations to Mrs. Long for her outstanding service to the Smackover School District!
