Teacher of the Year

Conway Corporation Teacher of the Year Grant & Award

The Conway Public Schools Foundation is proud to recognize the Conway Public Schools’ Teacher of the Year. The honor is underwritten by the generous support of Conway Corporation, which pledged a $440,000 gift over four years to endow the award and support the school foundation’s teacher grants.

“This is an investment in our future,” Conway Corp. CEO Richard Arnold told 501 Life Magazine. “Conway Corporation has its foundation in supporting education in our community, and we are proud to build on that foundation with this investment in the students of Conway.”
