On Friday, January 5th, EXCEL students gathered at Metropolitan Career Technical Center to participate in the #excelathon2018.  The event was sponsored by the Arkansas National Guard and the Little Rock Regional Chamber.  Students were divided into teams and challenged to DEVELOP A SOLUTION WITH A DETAILED PLAN a high school could implement to address the problems with teens using social media.  First place was awarded to the team of Cecilia Castillo, Jakymbriea Burns, Dennisha Teague, Khaleah Clay, Nadine Lopez, and Kevin Johnson. The team will have the opportunity to pitch their solution to Mr. Poore, LRSD Superintendent. Congratulations to the winning team and to the Teacher Cadets for planning a successful event!
