Governor Hutchinson issued the following statement: 

I look forward to my Computer Science Tour of Arkansas schools every spring and fall. After visiting more than 60 schools to share about the value of computer science education, I continue to be encouraged by the enthusiasm of our students and teachers for computer science—it’s their hard work that has made Arkansas a national leader in these efforts. I look forward to hitting the road once again to talk about the value of coding in these students’ lives and in Arkansas’ economy.
