Yes, good things do happen in Arkansas schools, including in the Little Rock School District.

We've just passed out plaques and checks at UALR to the 2015 Academic All-Star team — 19 of the 20 appear in the photo above. High grades and high test scores were typical, but the range of other interests was huge — from a state champion pole vaulter to an accordion play to a budding OBU-bound politician (who leans Democratic) to a prize-winning fiction writer.

You can find more on all of them in this week's cover story on the winners.
