Last night, the Arkansas Arts Academy School Board voted to accept high school principal Barb Padgett’s resignation. The decision to accept her resignation was not made easily nor lightly. Ms. Padgett has served the district for 11 years, and her dedication and commitment is deeply recognized and appreciated. Since this is a personnel matter, we cannot discuss the specifics of her resignation, and can only say that we wish her the best in all her future endeavors.
We know that that this is painful for the entire AAA family, but in the end, the school board felt that accepting her resignation was in the best interest of the school community. As a board, we will continue to work towards the goal of making AAA one of the best art schools in the nation.
