UA Little Rock students receive AGATE scholarships for gifted and talented education

Three graduate students at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock have been recognized for their excellence in gifted and talented education in Arkansas with scholarships from Arkansans for Gifted and Talented Education (AGATE).

"One of my favorite aspects about AGATE is the organization's ability to give back to the students and teachers in the form of awards and scholarships each year," said Dustin Seaton, president of AGATE. "I am a recipient of the AGATE scholarship previously, and it helped my family tremendously in paying for my G/T certification and endorsement."

Countess Cyrus, a kindergarten teacher with Little Rock School District, Krista Hinton, K-12 gifted and talented coordinator for Lavaca School District, and Sarah Willis, gifted and talented K-4 facilitator at Lakeside School District in Hot Springs, received $1,000 scholarships from AGATE.
