Another big year for Arkansas Commitment

A newsletter just arrived with a report on the 2013 class of Arkansas Commitment, a Little Rock program that works with bright area African-American students and points them toward demanding colleges and, it is hoped, return to further diversity the city's business and professional leadership as adults.

I can't present them all here, just the first page of the group, but they are 28 students heading to top colleges in Arkansas and across the country, from Santa Clara to Yale. They include Natonal Merit and Gates scholars. Yes, in the first page of the newsletter I reproduced above that's our Arkansas Times Academic All-star cover subject, eStem's Leonard Cooper, who's taking his Jeopardy-winning brain to Brown University.

All is not lost in Arkansas schools.

  • City ethics update; campaign limit was supposed to help the little guy

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
