School Board Recognition Month 2024

The Arkansas School Boards Association (ASBA) along with Governor Sarah Sanders announced that January is School Board Member Recognition Month in Arkansas. School board members play an essential role in their community. Lake Hamilton will join other districts in Arkansas in celebration of our board by thanking them for the time, talents, and knowledge they bring to our district and for their commitment to the families and children of our community.

The Lake Hamilton School District Board of Education consists of Matt Diggs (president), Dr. Tiffany McCain (vice president), Mark Curry (secretary), Dana Keithley (member), and Dr. Brian Peters (member).

As publicly elected school leaders, Arkansas school board members set policy for their respective districts. Under state law, they are empowered to hire and evaluate the superintendent, oversee district finances, approve the budget, and determine the vision and mission of the district. School boards must also approve the curriculum and ensure the district maintains adequate facilities for teaching and learning.

These dedicated individuals are committed to the well-being and success of every child, recognizing that quality education is tailored to the individual needs of each student.
