WBC board freezes
tuition, elects officers

Tuition will hold steady at Williams Baptist College next year, following action Friday by the WBC Board of Trustees.

Meeting in regular session, the board voted to forego any tuition increase for the 2017-18 school year.

"We understand that families struggle to pay for college, so we are very pleased to be able to hold the line on tuition for next year," said WBC President Tom Jones. "Williams provides an outstanding education and yet remains one of the most affordable Christian colleges in the nation. It is a great value in higher education."

WR Airport seeking new manager

The Walnut Ridge Regional Airport is seeking applicants for a new airport manager after current manager Maggie Glisson resigned effective Thursday. Glisson, who is moving out of the area, was hired for the position in May.

Commission Chair Don Cavenaugh said no airport experience is required for the position, instead they are seeking someone who is community service oriented. More specific details about the job's requirements can be found on page 8A in the airport's help wanted advertisement.

Wanting to hire within the county, Cavenaugh encourages all those interested to submit their applications as soon as possible.
