Arkansas school leader going to White House summit


ARKADELPHIA, Ark. (AP) - An Arkadelphia Public Schools leader has been selected by the U.S. Department of Education to participate in a White House conference on digital learning.

Donnie Whitten will be in Washington, D.C. for Wednesday's "ConnectED to the Future," summit hosted by President Barack Obama.

The event brings together superintendents and other educators from across the country who are leading their schools and districts in the transition to digital learning.

Officials estimate that since Obama's call to action in support of the ConnectED Initiative, more than $4 billion in public and private funding has been committed toward expanding high-speed Internet connectivity for America's schools and libraries.

From the most watched race for the U.S. Senate, the winner Tom Cotton tweeted, "We did it. Your support through this race has been truly incredible, and we couldn't have done it without you."
