Happy Friday! Today's #StaffFeatureFriday is Mrs. Paula Lovell! This is Mrs. Lovell's 16th year at Cedar Ridge, and her 23rd year in education. Jokingly, she likes to say that she was the "first Cedar Ridge employee" because she was hired at the board meeting that the school district became Cedar Ridge. Paula has a Masters in Curriculum & Instruction and certification in Administration. She also has a degree in Accounting and Business Administration. She currently works as the Director of Federal Programs and Student Services, which encompasses many things including District Testing Coordinator, Homeless Liaison, eSchool Administrator, and more. Mrs. Lovell has been married to her husband Todd for 32 years. She has two children, Christy and Justin, and a daughter-in-law Laura. She is involved in many different things at her church, including playing the piano. She is on the board for Christmas Brings Hope of Independence County. "I like to travel and see new places when possible. Work is a big part of my life so I like to relax on the weekends when I can. I'm so glad to have a work family like Cedar Ridge." Cedar Ridge is so happy to have someone like you, Paula!

Happy Friday! For this week's #StaffFeatureFriday, we are featuring Mr. Tim Cunningham. Tim has been teaching Agriculture since 1991 and began teaching at the Cedar Ridge School District in 2008. He has taught in 3 school districts in Arkansas. He graduated from Newark High School in 1986 and from Arkansas State University in 1990. His dad taught Agriculture in the district for 20 years, retiring with 39 years, and his mother taught elementary in the district as well. Tim is on his 12th year in the district and 29th overall. "I love my job, but most importantly I love God and my family. My faith is the most important aspect of my life. I have been blessed with a wonderful wife, Amy, of 29 years and two sons, Tyler and Austin. I love working with students and getting them involved in education. There is no better feeling than when a student “gets it” or shares their knowledge with others to educate them. I’ve had the privilege to start two livestock show programs in two schools over the years. I really enjoy getting kids to work with livestock. It can impact them a variety ways that will affect them the rest of their lives. I have no hobbies, but I guess working with livestock and kids after hours would be as close to a hobby that I have. I hope that when I retire someday all my former students can say Mr. C truly cared about his kids. They don’t care what you know until they know you care." Cedar Ridge is so happy to have someone like Mr. Cunningham! Give him a shout out in the comments below!

She started at CRHS in 2017, and is going on her 4th year here. She is an English teacher, and currently teaches 8th grade English and Reading and 7th grade Reading.

I get to share this passion with all of my students! My husband, Hayden, and I have been married for 6 years. We have two lovely boys! In our free time you can find us simply spending time together, golfing, riding horses, or anything else outdoors! I love being a part of the Timberwolf family. Go Timberwolves!!"

Happy Friday! Today's #StaffFeatureFriday is Mrs. Annette Ward. Annette graduated High School from Tuckerman and then attended ASU. She started at Cord Charlotte in January of 1990 as a Bus Driver, and became the Transportation Director in March of 2016. "I have 2 sons, Jonathan and Joey and we added Maggie, Joey's wife, last October to our family. I got married to my husband Johnny in 1986 and moved to Charlotte. I had always lived in town, so moving to the country was a shock to my system. Now I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. We live on a small farm with about 25 cows and 4 horses. I really enjoy my job. I love the kids and enjoy making sure they get to school safely. I really don't have too many hobbies, but I do enjoy getting on the tractor and bush hogging. I have always enjoyed any and everything my boys were doing, whether it was rodeoing or playing ball. I attend Swifton First Assembly of God where I teach High School Sunday School class and serve as the Missions Director." Cedar Ridge is so proud to have someone like you, Mrs. Annette!

Happy #StaffFeatureFriday! This week, we are spotlighting Mr. Kenneth McSpadden. Kenneth started at Cedar Ridge in 2002, and is currently the Elementary East Facilitator. "I'm a military brat, born on Lackland AFB, TX. I've been to all states except for Oregon and Hawaii -- went to a different school about every 3 years from moving base to base. I went to Batesville High School for two years, graduated in May 1976, then was back in the Air Force by September 1976. I've worked on fighter planes, F-4, F-16, and then the B-2 Stealth Bomber. I've been to Iceland, and all over Europe. I supported the "Cold War", Desert Storm, War in Bosnia, Iraq-Northern and Southern No-Fly Zones. I eventually retired from USAF in 1999 with 22.5 years, then got my degree while in the AF and did the Troops to Teacher program in AR. Took a few classes while I was substituting and started out as a school secretary until I was an official certified teacher." Kenneth enjoys running, hiking, timing races, and Mac's Race Timing. Cedar Ridge is so proud to have someone like you, Mr. McSpadden!

It's time for another #StaffFeatureFriday! This week we are spotlighting Mr. Vaughn Ward. Vaughn began working at Cedar Ridge right out of college in the fall of 1981 at the old campus. His entire career has been with this school district. "I graduated from Cord-Charlotte High School in 1975, then entered Arkansas College (now Lyon College) and graduated from there in 1979 with a BA degree in Biology. I was still unsure of what I wanted to do with this degree up until my last semester of school. A friend suggested I take a Children's Literature class as an elective. I loved it, and decided at that time I wanted to become an elementary teacher. So after two more years of college, I graduated again with a degree in Elementary Education. I was lucky to be hired here in Newark as fifth/sixth grade science teacher, and now teach 5th grade science and social studies. I also completed my masters degree in elementary education in 1986." Vaughn enjoys spending free time with his family and friends. He also enjoys hunting, fishing, gardening, reading, and raising chickens. Cedar Ridge is so proud to have someone like Vaughn Ward!

We both come from large families so we are never bored! Together we enjoy hiking, kayaking, and fishing. If you ever catch me by myself you'll find me curled up with a book and a cup of Earl Grey.
