Kickstart Sheridan and Baxter County Forward received the awards at the Breakthrough Solutions Conference on June 26 for their exemplary vision and accomplishments. The Breakthrough Solutions SOAR Awards are given to communities, regions, or individuals
who best exemplify the Breakthrough solutions principles and spirit in their community
A community partner was also recognized at the recent conference in Little Rock. Tandee
White, with Entergy Arkansas, took home the SOAR Partner Award for her exemplary service to the Breakthrough Solutions Program
and the people of Arkansas.
White joined Entergy Arkansas in January 1995 and has worked in marketing, corporate
communications, and regulatory affairs. The majority of her time with Entergy has
been spent in economic development where she is responsible for the design and coordination
of Community Development programs at Entergy.
White provides consultation services to communities on site identification, development
and certification; community and economic development education and training; and
community and economic development planning.
With the theme “This is Our Time,” Kickstart Sheridan successfully completed its strategic
blueprint and action plan with a launch event on May 7, 2019. A collaboration between
University of Central Arkansas' Center for Community and Economic Development and
the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service's Breakthrough Solutions
Program, Kickstart Sheridan was formed after a team of Community Development Institute graduates interacted with
Sheridan, Grant County, and the Sheridan School District representatives last summer.
Following a community survey, action teams formed and included: Downtown Development,
Recreation and Things to Do, Education and Economic Development, Small Business Development
and Entrepreneurship, and Infrastructure.
Likewise, Baxter County Forward started out with the future in mind. Initially sponsored by the Mountain Home Area Chamber
of Commerce, a broad-based steering committee was formed to engage in the Breakthrough
Solutions development process, leading to a strategic blueprint and action plan.
The county’s population loss and its effect on the community was major catalyst for
this initiative. After a community survey, the following actions teams emerged: Drugs,
Business and Industry, Education and Workforce Development, Quality of Place, Tourism,
Marketing, Branding, Retirees and Retiree Attraction, and Funding and Finance.
Congratulations to the 2019 Breakthrough Solutions SOAR Award winners.
