THV 11 in My Town visit: Russellville

RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) – My most recent THV11 in My Town visit brought me to the lovely city of Russellville.

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

My first stop on this visit was at the Chamber of Commerce with executive vice president Stephanie Beerman and Amanda Johnson, A&P marketing assistant for the Arkansas River Valley Tri-Peak Regions.

While a COC is always centered on business and providing its members with multiple networking opportunities, Stephanie also had an extended list of new events coming up in the Russellville area that the city’s residents can enjoy.

Arkansas Scholarship Lottery closing regional claim centers

Arkansas Scholarship Lottery closing regional claim centers


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Arkansas Scholarship Lottery) —The Arkansas Lottery Commission voted today to close its three regional claim centers in Springdale, Jonesboro and Camden, a savings measure expected to free as much as $381,000 to fund additional scholarships for Arkansas students.

The motion, made by Commissioner Mark Scott and approved by the Commission, provides for the closure of each claim center when its lease runs out. The Springdale center will close effective October 1, 2014, with claim centers in Jonesboro and Camden shuttering effective November 30, 2014. Commissioner Bruce Engstrom, noting that each claim center has a staff of two, asked Arkansas Scholarship Lottery Director Bishop Woosley to make those persons aware of any job opportunities for which they might be qualified within the Lottery.
