Bob Courtway Middle School Literacy Teacher Corey Oliver served as the Keynote Speaker for the University of Central Arkansas Black Alumni Weekend Scholarship Banquet Saturday. Oliver encouraged attendees to use their time, talents and treasures to give back to the students at UCA. He was recognized as an astounding UCA Alumni Association Lifetime Member.
"Corey has impacted so many students here in Conway," says Dr. Karen Lasker, Principal at Bob Courtway Middle School. " I really have never known one individual who encompasses so much talent. He continues to share his love for academics with his students and colleagues."
Over $2,000 was donated at UCA's event and several pledges totaling $15,000 were made that will go toward student scholarships.
"He is so full of rich stories to tell of student accomplishments and how he celebrates students in the classroom. People that I encounter across the state ask me do I know him and I am so proud to say not only do I know him, but I know him well. He is a part of our family at Bob Courtway," says Lasker.
