In our local school districts when you think of technology, the first name that comes to mind is Bruce Watson from the Northeast Arkansas Education Cooperative.
The first technology coordinators were hired in July and August of 1995 for each of the 15 education cooperatives in the state. This is when Watson began his journey as the technology
coordinator at the NEA Co-op.
During this time APSCN (Arkansas Public School Computer Network) began constructing a statewide computer network at the NEA Co-op's main office, which then resided on the Hoxie School District campus.
