Shannon Wright Award
Shannon Wright Award has recognized one exemplary middle level program
in Arkansas each year since its inception in 1999. The award is
presented to a school that demonstrates outstanding achievement in the
implementation of the best middle level practices as outlined in the
report Turning Points: Preparing American Youth for the 21st Century.
The award derives its name from Shannon Wright, a middle school
teacher, who died in the tragic Westside Middle School shooting incident
in March, 1998. LMS is very proud to be recognized as an outstanding
PE 4 Life Academy
physical education program at Lingle is a certified PE4LIFE program. To
become certified, a school must go through an application process and
demonstrate that it combines today's best practices to inspire and
educate all students about the vital importance of lifetime physical
activity and fitness. Academy status was announced in January of 2007.
Being an Academy means Lingle will provide training to school and
community leaders with the objective of assisting them with the
development of PE4LIFE Certified Programs in their communities.
