Northeast Ark. tech college opts out of gun law

June 10, 2013

POCAHONTAS — Black River Technical College is joining the list of Arkansas schools that won't allow concealed guns on campus.

The school's board of trustees voted last week to opt out of the new state law. Board chairman John Jackson Jr. tells the Paragould Daily Press (http://bit.ly/190kHiU ) that the trustees had several questions about the new law and decided not to change the college's current policy banning weapons.

Black River Technical College has about 3,000 students with campuses in Pocahontas and Paragould.

Ark. lawmakers to look at scholarship programs

June 10, 2013

LITTLE ROCK — Arkansas lawmakers are studying the state's scholarship programs after a shortfall prompted Gov. Mike Beebe to tap into reserve funds to continue grants that help students pursue degrees in some medical fields.

Members of the House and Senate Education Committee on Monday said they planned to look at the state's 24 scholarship programs. State higher education officials say they need an additional $5.5 million to restore about 4,800 scholarships for incoming students that will be cut because of a shortfall in its fund.
