Today we visited Future Fuels in Batesville as well as Entergy in Newark. The teachers I'm traveling with got to see first hand the types of jobs that will be available to their students, and that experience will help our teachers guide and educate the rising generation.


The connection between education and the workplace should be strengthened for the sake of our students and their future. That's the reason behind why we're traveling from Mountain Home to Stuttgart this week, making the connection between 1st District teachers and local manufacturers.


Today I continued my STEM education tour, this time in Mountain Home, where I met a very special person. On June 7, 1966, Ms. Neely reported for her first day of work at Baxter’s Mountain Home, Arkansas plant which had opened just two years earlier. She planned to work only three months to buy school clothes for her kids. Now 50 years later she is still with the plant. Ms. Neely operates a machine making injection molding parts used in numerous healthcare settings, and the parts she makes are shipped to manufacturing sites around the world. She has always felt pride about the work she does, particularly when seeing those products in action while visiting relatives in the hospital. Ms. Neely is known by her supervisor as the model employee, someone who can be depended on every day, and an employee who works well with all her coworkers. Ms. Neely’s commitments extend to her family. Her daughter now works at the plant as well. She got those school clothes, and much more, thanks to her mom’s dedication to Baxter Mountain Home. I thank Ms. Neely for her fifty years of dedicated and faithful service in Arkansas.
