Mr. Brandin Shost’s Gifted Class took a virtual tour of the Thai Royal Palace recently during a one hour broadcast via Skype. Mr. Shost is in Thailand teaching English for three weeks. While there he is also giving his students at BES an up close and personal tour of Thailand, despite the 12 hour time difference. While online students learned about cultural differences, architectural design, traditions and most of all the high regard this country holds for it’s monarchy. Thank you Mr. Shost for making learning exciting! We are lucky to have you! Submitted by Cindy Stewart.

Superintendent A. Russell Hughes was recently selected as a guest speaker for the Florida School Board Association and Florida Association of District School Superintendents 72nd Annual Summer Joint Conference.  Mr. Hughes provided an inspirational and compelling thought for the day to School Board members and Superintendents of Florida school districts who were in attendance.  He was quoted as saying "With love and compassion for the students in your district, you can make it happen!"  We can definitely attest to that philosophy here in Walton County School District. Thanks to Mr. Hughes for his leadership and inspiration!
