Arkadelphia named 'City of Distinction' by Arkansas Business Magazine
Arkansas Business magazine has named Arkadelphia as a 2011 City of Distinction for the development and implementation of the Southwest Arkansas College Preparatory Academy. The Academy recently began its fourth year with 184 students from Clark County high schools. The Saturday and summer classes are held on the campuses of Henderson State University and Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia.
"The Academy is just one example of the innovative partnerships that are making a difference in our schools and community," said Arkadelphia Superintendent Donnie Whitten. "We would like to thank everyone involved in its development and implementation - especially our private funders and university partners at Henderson and Ouachita. We appreciate the recognition from Arkansas Business and look forward to strengthening the educational and economic vision for Clark County."
