Norrfiwsrt Arkaniat TIMtS, M«n., Feb. 19, 1973 AY«TT»VILLt, AHKANSA* 11 HENRY SHREVE . . . school board candidate Shreve Seeks A New Term On Fayetfeville School Board Editor's Note: This Is t h e first in a series of interviews with the five candidates w h o have filed for positions on the Fayettevillc School Board. The incumbents, Dr. Charles Oxford and Henry Shreve have drawn opposition and voters will cast ballots f o r the directors at the March 13 school election. The election nf directors is the only issue on the ballot. By PAT DONAT TIMES Staff Writer Henry Shreve, who has seen the Fayetteville school system frow from a budget of $800,000 to $4 million, has filed tor reelection to the School Board'. He is opposed in the March 13 school election by Tom Duncan and Don Trumbo. Shreve presently president of the Board has served as a director since 1955. Shreve, born in Denver, Colo, in-191,1 was reared in the F a r m i n g t o n area a n d his ancestors were pioneer t a t t l e r s of Washington County. He attended business college and has done specia! work at the University of Arkansas. In January 1971 he retired director of poultry operations al Campbell Soup. He is marriet to the former Pauline Smith am they are parents of f n u r children, all who have attendee F a y e t t e v i l l e schools anc graduated from t h.e University here, His sons, Benny anc Jimmy are both living in Fayetteville. His children are the reason he wants to continue serving a a director. "I feel that since my four chilren' went through the schools, I owe the school a debt. I have no self-serving Interest hut I do want to hav the best school system we can afford. Our schools are ratei among the top in the state anc I would like to see them contin ue to improve. Since I am re tired I can devote more tim to help foster this objective,' he said. Shreve feels that financing i the ; single biggest problem facing schools today. "We hav had to expend considerahl money just to keep up with th area growth," he explainec During his tenure two Junio high schools, five elementar schools, and west campus Fayetteville High School hav been erected. "We do have some exlr classrooms now. Our plannin anticipated public kingde gartens and this was one of th reasons which led to co ·truction of Happy Hollo School. I favor immediate inst " tutlon of kindergarten and v are in a position to impleme the program . if funds ar available, but do not have fund to support it now," he said. In order to keep Fayettevillc ihools among the best in the ate, Shi-eve favors a con- nuoas study of innovations in ducation by the administrative aff. "The constant changes in ie educational scene demand lat the staff keep up to date that the overall educational rogram c a n be updated to neet the needs." TOD priority, in the s c h o o 1 /stem in his opinion, is the ontinuous assessment of the ital program, to insure that ie schools provide an education hich fits students for the ociety in which they must live. Commenting on the well ounded program the schools ow provide, Shreve said that nrollment at West Campus and h e F a y e t t e v i l l e Adult ducalion program is con- nuing to grow. "If federal unding is cut for vocational ethnical training I think there ill have to be adjustments in ie different programs. I don't elieve, however, that it will be ut. Congress realizes the need or it and will see it is funded, f, however, funding is stopped e will have to curtail some f the programs. Local support night be available to continue ome of the programs," he said. Shreve endorses vocational jareer training programs and eels they are an essential part f the high school curriculum. "They are part of a well ounded · program and schools must prepare students for both igher education' and careers, whichever route the individual itudents selects," he said. The incumbent sees education as one of the most effective vays to combat the d r u g problem. "Faculty and students dike must be alert to the lazards in order to combat the iroblem." He pointed to the fact that :he School Board approved the Arkansas Drug Abuse Preventive Tactics (ADAPT) the education program instituted in ·fayelteville and Springdale Schools, and emphasized the r o l e counseling plays in remedies for the problem. S h r e v e also noted the cooperation between the school and community which will p r o v i d e community wide recreation for adults and students. "This will insure widespread use of school facilities so taxpayers ean get total value from their tax dollars. The recreational program planned by the Parks and Recreation Commit- te'e of the city, will get more kids involved in sports and extra-curricular activity which will keep them out of other things." Shreve sees the school hoard as a policy making Board with directors available to the public to bring problems before the Board.
