Dr. James M. Jennings dedicated his life to reducing educational inequalities in the Arkansas Delta. Dr. Jennings joined the Hendrix faculty in 1992 as an Assistant Professor of Education and History. From 2002 to 2015 he was the Chairperson for the Education Department. In 2007 Dr. Jennings designed the Above the Line Project to work with elementary students who previously scored "below" or "below basic" on the Arkansas Benchmark Exam.
During his career he received numerous educational awards, including the Arkansas Education Association Civil and Human Rights Awards and the United Methodist Church Exemplary Teaching Award. This spring, he was awarded the Cynthia Cook Sandefur Odyssey Professorship for the "Above the Line Project 400" to continue working with public schools in the Arkansas Delta.
