Arkadelphia Promise

Yesterday evening, a host of local and state dignitaries were on hand at a packed Badger Stadium to announce a new scholarship program. The Arkadelphia Promise Scholarship promises full college tuition to all Arkadelphia Public School students meeting certain academic criteria.  This is truly great news for the future of our community. Thanks to the sponsors, the Ross Foundation and Southern Bancorp, for making such a generous investment into our town’s children.
