Arkansas Educator Tells Columbus Community: Stand Up for Children

Rosa Parks Women of Courage Breakfast draws 1,200 to the Columbus Convention and Trade Center. Charity Fleming Smith, former Arkansas assistant commissioner of education, told crowd it is time for people to stop being quitters and to stand-up on behalf of children who are falling through the cracks. “Rosa Parks stood for excellence and excellence is a result of carrying more than others think is wise, and risking more than others think is safe, and expecting more than others think is possible, and dreaming more than others think is practical,” she said.
