Arkansas Christian Academy will begin construction on a new facility at 12:15 p.m. Sunday.
The 20,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility will more than accommodate the 100 students now enrolled in the academy and there will be room for growth, said school secretary Amy Millea. The academy, a ministry of Family Church, reportedly has maintained a steady growth rate since its opening in 2001.
Bryant police have arrested a 16-year-old Bryant High School student in connection with the robbery of RadioShack in Bryant last week.
The suspect's name has not been released, but this will change if he is tried as an adult, which is possibility, said Sgt. Todd Crowson of the Bryant Police Department. The teen faces charges of aggravated robbery and theft of property.
It was reported that the store had been robbed at gunpoint. However, the weapon was a pellet gun, not a fire arm, Crowson said.
The suspect reportedly made off with an undisclosed amount of money from the cash register.
