🗣🗣🗣Let's welcome Mrs. Brandy Dukes back to the team as our Director of Coordinated Support! With her stuffed animals as her first students, Mrs. Dukes knew at an early age that she wanted to be in education. Teaching in both TN and AR, Mrs. Dukes has over 12 years of experience in education and leadership. Mrs. Dukes affirms that it's only through the Grace of God, that she has overcome obstacles that have allowed her to elevate out of the classroom and into full-time leadership at Graduate Arkansas. Forever grateful for the new direction and path that God has her on, Mrs. Dukes is ready to continue serving all students across Arkansas with the GRADUATE ARKANSAS TEAM!!
