Can­di­date Hopes To Con­tinue As Board Mem­ber

Prairie Grove School Board, Po­si­tion 1

Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - SCHOOL ELECTIONS -

Mark Beaver, 48, has more than 20 years in the con­struc­tion busi­ness and in lead­er­ship roles and be­lieves those ex­pe­ri­ences will help him con­tinue to serve as a mem­ber of Prairie Grove School Board.

Beaver was ap­pointed to the School Board last fall to fill a va­cancy cre­ated by the res­ig­na­tion of board mem­ber Eric Walker. Beaver had pre­vi­ously run for a po­si­tion in Septem­ber 2015. One of the main rea­sons the board voted to ap­point Beaver to fill the va­cancy was that he had shown an in­ter­est in be­ing a mem­ber of the School Board.

Beaver is seek­ing elec­tion to Po­si­tion 1 on Prairie Grove School Board.

A grad­u­ate of Prairie Grove High School, Beaver is an elec­tri­cian and at­tended North­west


School in Springdale.

His youngest daugh­ter grad­u­ated from Prairie Grove High in May.

Beaver said he be­lieves the role of a school board mem­ber is to sup­port the dis­trict’s fac­ulty in cre­at­ing a safe, chal­leng­ing en­vi­ron­ment for stu­dents to suc­ceed. His ex­pe­ri­ence as a board mem­ber the past year will al­low him to con­tinue serv­ing the dis­trict with­out any in­ter­rup­tion in Board con­ti­nu­ity, he added.

He has 25 years of ex­pe­ri­ence in con­struc­tion and 20 years ex­pe­ri­ence in lead­er­ship roles at var­i­ous em­ploy­ments.

This ex­pe­ri­ence “helps me deal with staff and dif­fi­cult is­sues,” Beaver said.

If elected, Beaver said his goals would in­clude im­prov­ing fa­cil­i­ties, im­prov­ing fac­ulty and help­ing to cre­ate a safer en­vi­ron­ment.

“I grew up in Prairie Grove, I have spent most of my life in this School Dis­trict,” Beaver said. “I love this School Dis­trict and com­mu­nity. I would like to help make it a bet­ter place.”
