Jacksonville residents react to getting new school district

JACKSONVILLE, Ark. (KTHV)- It's official! Jacksonville residents have voted to separate from the Pulaski County Special School District and create their own district with ten schools and roughly four thousand students.

"It's a historic event and I like to say this is probably the biggest thing to happen to our town since the air force base moved here sixty years ago," said Jacksonville Education Corps spokesman Daniel Gray. "It's a game changer for us."

Lifetime Jacksonville resident Stephen Gray believes separating from PCSSD will bring on new opportunities for the students, teachers, and the community. "All our funds have been going to Maumelle high school and Sherwood elementary school to build these massive new buildings when Jacksonville hasn't had a new building in over thirty years," he said. "I'm ecstatic right now because my kid isn't going to have to go through the same awful school district I had to."

One young Arkansas girl is trying to change that, one picture at a time.

11-year-old Katie Chandler began the Facebook page Humans of Arkansas in July as a way to tell the hundreds of stories we don't see every day.

"Some people reject us and some people are glad to do it," Chandler said smiling.

Even though she's from the tiny town of Newhope, Katie has traveled all over Arkansas, cementing moments in time in Hot Springs, Little Rock and Fayetteville, introducing new characters, triumphs, and tribulations with each snap shot.
