Congratulations to Bob Folsom Elementary and Farmington High School for being awarded Purple Star status by the Arkansas Council of the Military Interstate Children’s Compact Commission during the March 29 school board meeting. 

The Arkansas Purple Star School Award for military-friendly schools recognizes schools that show a major commitment to serving students and families connected to our nation’s armed forces. Purple Star awardees receive a special Purple Star recognition to display in their building and are recognized on the Division of Elementary and Secondary Education website. Currently, there is only one other school in Northwest Arkansas that has received this recognition out of 35 across the state.
