CONWAY, Ark. (June 16, 2014) – Four Hendrix alumni were chosen for the Arkansas Teacher Corps. A competitive program similar to Teach For America, the Arkansas Teacher Corps began last year.

Hendrix graduates selected for the Arkansas Teacher Corps include:

  • Mary Beth Breshears ’14, studio art
