The Marion School District is proud to announce the hiring of MHS alumni Charles “Chuck” Livingston as a communications specialist. Livingston's hire allows the district to cover more school events, tell more student stories, and share more information about the innovative work taking place in the district.

“Amazing things happen on a daily basis throughout our school district,” said Dr. Glen Fenter, Marion superintendent. “We owe it to our community to do a better job of communicating those accomplishments. We believe that the more familiar our community becomes with their school district the more excited they will be about the future of our community. Chuck is going to be able to help us do that. We are excited to have him on board.”

Livingston comes to Marion with a strong background in news media. Since 2016, he has written for Hooten’s Arkansas Football magazine, a premier high school football publication. Before that, he spent three years writing for The Crittenden County Evening Times.

“We are excited to be able to add an experienced journalist like Chuck to our communications team,” said Andy Weld, the district’s director of communications. “With Chuck on board, we are going to be able to share more stories about the amazing things going on in our district. Chuck has a strong media background, and with his knowledge of the community, he is going to be a great addition to our staff.”

Livingston graduated from Marion High School in 2005 and said “it's thrilling to be able to come home.”

“I'm excited to be able to inform the community about the awesome things going on in our district,” Livingston said. “The best part of covering schools has been enriching the lives of young people. This is a great opportunity for me to expand what I've done in the past, and in a place that has always meant so much to me.”
