I love that Hector is a great small community where everyone knows your name and they are always willing to help you out. Great for the quiet country life.

Hector, Ar was one of the most influential places I grew up. Everyone in this town was kind and caring. It taught me to be who I am, not who everyone wants me to be. However, it does have its flaws. The diversity in hector lacks. Which also means there isn't much culture there. It is a great town besides its flaws. The school is beyond amazing. I was learning at a faster rate than I ever have. It is also very rural, so you have plenty of area to grow your own food.
The atmosphere in Hector is very nice, everyone is content. I would like to see more bushiness and more people.
