District, Club Collect Food

Superintendent Will Work From Atop Building If Goal's Met

Posted: December 13, 2012 at 5 a.m.

Michael Poore, Bentonville Schools superintendent, works Wednesday amid a growing pile of donated food items in his office at the district’s Administration Building in Bentonville. Poore is taking nonperishable food donations to benefit the Samaritan House in Rogers through Tuesday. He hopes enough donations will be made to force him out of his office and onto the building’s roof.

The Bentonville School District superintendent and School Board president are at it again. This time the superintendent could end up on the roof.
