About 30 Arkadelphia High School seniors who plan to attend Henderson State University beginning in fall 2013 participated in the Arkadelphia Promise Signing Ceremony on May 21. The Arkadelphia Promise scholarships will help pay for qualifying students to attend the college or university of their choice. Funding for the scholarships is provided by Southern Bancorp and the Ross Foundation. The program was conceived and developed by the Clark County Strategic Plan. Following the ceremony, Henderson hosted a reception for its new students at the high school.
