The past few days have been busy as we've driven through the Arkansas Delta. First we visited Thrive in Helena to see some of the work they've done to revitalize downtown. We then visited with folks at the Rotary luncheon, and after that saw the Boys and Girls club and one of the flagship locations of Kids for the Future. Then today I visited Strong Grip Learning Academy in Marion and spoke at the National Cotton Council's mid year board meeting.


Today was all about Newport as we toured Helena Chemical, which provides products and services for our ag producers. I also had the chance to visit the high school. Go Greyhounds!


When the school closed after integration, the local community bonded together to use the old grounds as a community center. Today, the work that the folks at the Holman Heritage Community Center are doing is nothing short of amazing. They use the facilities to feed the local community Sunday dinners, take care of kids after school, and as a gym. Equally impressive is that they've done it almost entirely through community funded support. I would encourage other delta communities to look to these visionaries and the success story that they've built here in Stuttgart.
