WJHS Teachers Receive 21C (1:1) Grants

The Bentonville Public Schools 21C Grant program provides a classroom set of laptops to teachers that receive the grants.

This year, 115 applications were submitted and the selection process was tougher than ever.

WJHS was the recipient of five grants this year (3 individual grants and 2 team grants)!

The transformation of our building over the past couple of years has been greatly enhanced by these grants.

We appreciate the Bentonville Public Schools Foundation, the Bentonville School Board, and the Bentonville School District Administration for their continued support of the 21C grant program.

We especially thank our Superintendent Mr. Poore, Executive Director of Finance Dr. Ming, Executive Director of Secondary Instruction Judy Marquess, and our Technology Director, Andy Mayes for their efforts to ensure that this program not only continues, but thrives.

Our recipients this year were:


Brittani Durr

Jody Newton


Erin Valentine


Kim Woods
