Clinton School graduate Rachel Cole (’19) has joined Apptegy, an EdTech company based in Little Rock, Ark.
Founded in 2015, Apptegy builds websites and mobile apps for schools, and offers a content management system, Thrillshare, that lets administrators create and distribute content and other updates. Thrillshare is used in hundreds of K-12 schools across 38 states, managing online interactions between schools and their audience.
Among other responsibilities, Cole will provide ongoing support for Thrillshare and its features to Apptegy clients. Additionally, she will lead product trainings for school administrators and staff.
Cole joins Clinton School graduates Greg Cooper (’12), Mark Lienhart (’11), Hunter Owen (’17), and Angela Toomer (’15) at Apptegy.
As a student at the Clinton School, Cole and classmate Beth Quarles were awarded a grant from the B.A. Rudolph Foundation for their study on teacher leadership in Arkansas. The grant supported Cole and Quarles in developing a landscape analysis and conduct a needs assessment for teacher leadership and pipeline programs in Arkansas.
The Clinton School Speaker Series not only enhances the education of Clinton School students, but also provides a venue for the public to engage in intellectual discussions on the issues of the day.
