On May 8, 2018, 52 new teachers to the Russellville School District completed the New Teacher Academy (NTA) program with a luncheon at the Center for The Arts. The luncheon is the annual conclusion to the NTA program, which aims to support newly hired teachers and provides essential professional development, team building, and mentoring to the new teachers throughout their first year at RSD.

During the luncheon, Arkansas Department of Education Deputy Commissioner Dr. Ivy Pfeffer was the guest speaker. The luncheon concluded with the teachers being presented with a glass apple to commemorate the completion of the program.
