CO-OP RECEIVING NEW ROOF - A crew works to install a new retrofit roof on the Northeast Arkansas Education Cooperative in Walnut Ridge. The new roof will match the existing building to the new Early Childhood Building. New floor tile was also added over the Christmas break, and the interior is being painted, as well. The renovations are expected to be complete by April, and an open house is being planned for the new Early Childhood Building after the work is complete.
