JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Arvest Bank loves teachers, including three in Craighead County.

The bank announced Thursday it had awarded $500 each to 160 educators across four states as a part of its “We Love Teachers” campaign.

Three of those receiving the award in Northeast Arkansas included:

  • Havilyn Baker, Brookland Elementary School in Brookland
