On Tuesday, May 6, several Sloan-Hendrix students traveled to Williams Baptist College to compete in the
Northeast Arkansas Educational Cooperative’s Project Fair. Students from the entire NEA Coop area presented
projects at the fair. Representing Sloan-Hendrix were senior Amanda Patterson who presented the Writers’ Club
Anthology, a publication featuring SHHS poetry and art work; senior Nikki Steveson who presented the making of
her award winning documentary Small Schools: Where Students Come First; and 6th grader Jesse Hufstedler who
presented his project on Julius Caesar. The final project from Sloan-Hendrix was a collaboration between Mrs.
Duncan’s 4th grade class and senior high multimedia students entitled The Wedding of Sarah Plain and Tall. Seniors
Breanda Henry and Nikki Steveson and junior Ryan Difani filmed the one act play which was written and performed
by Mrs. Duncan’s class. Nikki then edited the video and produced a DVD from the raw footage. The project was
presented by Breanda and representatives from the 4th grade, Carla Mitchell and Felecia Collins.  Jessie Huffstedler
received an Honorable Mention award for his project, competing in the 6th-8th grade division. The other three
projects were all entered in the 9th-12th grade division and all received Awards of Excellence. Each student
received ribbons for their awards, while Nikki and Breanda received three ribbons each because they were an
integral part of three different projects. During lunch, Sloan-Hendrix students were treated to the unique dining
experience of the Parachute Inn, a restaurant inside an airplane, and toured the Walnut Ridge Flying Museum.
Sloan-Hendrix students were accompanied by Rebecca Jones, GT Coordinator.
