Conway Public Schools will celebrate students at an assembly of students, teachers and community leaders at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 4 in the Buzz Bolding Arena at the Conway High School, according to a news release.
This is the Arkansas Advanced Initiative in Math and Science (AAIMS) Assembly meant to recognize students’ success last May on the College Board’s Advanced Placement Exams.
In 2010, Conway High School was selected to participate in the AAIMS Program that is funded primarily by the Exxon Mobil Corporation with assistance from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Dell. Arkansas is among six states selected to be a part of this national initiative.
Of the 31 participating high schools in the AAIMS Program, Conway High School students continue to be among the high schools that produce the highest number of successful Advanced Placement Exam scores.
Charles Morgan, founder of Acxiom and newly formed PrivacyStar, will speak on being competitive in a global world. He will also talk specifically to students about the importance of academic achievement and innovative thinking.
The Conway Area Chamber of Commerce will join the school district to host a reception for local business and community leaders in the Hospitality Room at the Buzz Bolding Arena at 12:30 p.m. The AAIMS Assembly will follow at 1:00 p.m.
