'It is a pleasure working alongside such distinguished leaders guiding the direction of AETN,' AETN Executive Director Allen Weatherly said. 'While budgets are incredibly tight, staff resources are very limited, and we have ongoing capital technology needs, the AETN Commission is overseeing a robust array of activities and services to benefit all Arkansans.
'AETN is so much more than quality programming for children, families and adults, including the ArkansasIDEAS educational professional development service, in partnership with ADE, that has grown into one of the nation's largest such services.'
