MHS Junior Nominated for ADE Diamond Award


Mansfield High School junior, Josephine Frasier, was nominated for the Arkansas Department of Education’s Diamond Award.

Frasier is a student in the Alternative Learning Environment Classroom. ALE instructor Talana Nelson nominated her through the Arkansas Association of Alternative Educators for the ADE Diamond Award.

“They had so many great nominations but could only pick one winner,” explained Nelson. So the committee decided to give all nominees a certificate and medal.”

Frasier was nominated based on her tenacity, effort, achievement and self-motivation. She plans to go on to college and become a forensic entomologist.

“She has worked very hard through some very stressful times to get on track and stay on track,” concluded Nelson.

Congratulations to Frasier on being recognized by the ADE and for being honored as a Diamond nominee.
