Bold actions

If we look back at our recent history, we can see several instances where bold action resulted in something good. A friend, who wished to remain anonymous, mentioned this idea to me.

One bold move or action was the establishment of Southern Baptist College, which is now Williams Baptist College. Dr. H.E. Williams, the founder and namesake of the college, saw much success and growth at the college during his lifetime. However, I think even he would be amazed at the growth and development that has taken place as the college now celebrates its 75th anniversary.

Pictures of the Past

When public schools in Arkansas were established in the 1870s, there were 18 original school districts in Lawrence County. The number of school districts grew to over 80 before consolidation started in the 1940s - today there are only four.
