Here’s a feel good story from the River Valley. Some 6th graders at Fort Smith Public Schools are showing off some new shoes… all thanks to their teacher. Paige Turney used an online platform to raise money and provide her entire class with new tennis shoes. She chose a shoe for each of her 18 students based on what she’s learned about their personality and preferences. The total donation was about $1,500 in value.
