Gov. Asa Hutchinson named a University of Arkansas graduate to the Arkansas Board of Education, his office announced last week. Sarah Moore of Stuttgart earned a doctorate in education policy from the College of Education and Health Professions in 2015.

Her appointment will expire on June 30, 2025.

Moore served as the education policy adviser to the governor for three years, focusing on K-12 education issues, including the computer science initiative. In this role, she saw firsthand that Arkansas' students will be better prepared for their future and will exceed when provided high-quality opportunities, such as computer science, the announcement said.

She has a background in elementary education and education policy, formerly teaching elementary school in the Stuttgart district. She was awarded a Doctoral Academy Fellowship at the U of A, where she worked in the Office of Education Policy and with the Arkansas Teacher Corps. A native of Little Rock, she has a Bachelor of Arts from Duke University.

"I received a world-class education at the University of Arkansas Department of Education Reform, where I gained valuable research and analytical skills that guide my work and thinking in education," Moore said.
