  • NHCCC luncheon meeting features an inside look at Heights schools
    9/22/2018 The September luncheon meeting of the Northern Hamilton County Chamber of Commerce, conducted at the high school’s Anthony “Tony” Cook Media Center, featured a behind-the-scenes look at how Hamilton Heights School Corporation is transforming its learning environment, creating more opportunities for student achievement, and how the collaboration between the corporation and community engagement impacts student success.
    Dr. Arrowood, who has been at the helm of the corporation for the past five years, is passionate about Heights, its students, faculty, and staff. Long viewed as a “best kept secret” in Hamilton County, Dr. Arrowood and his leadership team have set out to change that. “We want people to know as much and be as enthusiastic about the corporation as we are,” said Dr. Arrowood, a graduate of Hamilton Heights, who is also a parent to one Heights’ graduate and another currently enrolled.
