25 Aug 501 LIFE to be featured on Channel 4 segment
The September “Education” edition of 501 LIFE will be highlighted on KARK Channel 4 during the 12:30 p.m. news show on Friday, Aug. 31.
Each month, 501 LIFE co-publisher and editor Sonja Keith presents information about the current edition as it hits the streets. “This month, 501 LIFE is all about education,’” said Keith. “This edition has some great articles, including a guest column by University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton Chancellor Dr. Larry Davis, who shares with readers his personal story and why vocational training is important not only in Arkansas but in the U.S.”
501 LIFE enlisted the help of UACCM welding student Nathaniel Caldwell for the cover of this month’s edition. “It is always a treat to get to visit the new Workforce Training Center at UACCM, where the cover photo was shot,” said Keith.
