Honorary Toad Suck Daze 2014 festival co-chairs are Victor and Charlotte Green.
Festival Director Mary Margaret Satterfield said the Greens, both active members of the community, are great representatives of Toad Suck Daze because of their involvement in education.
Dr. Charlotte Green has been in education for more than 17 years, teaching first and fifth grades and also gifted education. She has served as an assistant principal, and she opened Woodrow Cummins Elementary as principal and served that role for four years. She is currently the supervisor of Conway Public Schools’ Gifted and Advanced Placement Programs. She is the founder of the nonprofit organization Arkansas Preschool Plus and is the television host for AETN’s new education talk show titled, “Arkansas Voices for Education,” which is set to air in June. Green is the author of two books, “Because I Said So: A Discussion on Parenting Styles and Achievement Gaps” and “Parent Bailout: The Bailout that is Really Crippling America.”
“My parents taught me to serve, and I love serving,” said Green. “I am honored to be asked to work with the community in helping raise funds for education. Education is the great equalizer and to be part of a community that strives to provide quality education for all children is ‘toadally’ awesome.”
Victor Green is a Conway businessman and University of Central Arkansas alumnus.
He is a member of UCA’s Board of Trustees, appointed in 2010 by Governor Mike Beebe.
He has served on the UCA Foundation Board in years past.
The Greens have two children, David and Caleb.
