VICTORY: Arkansas Restores Scholarship Funding

University of Arkansas

Education cuts threatened funding for the Arkansas Governor’s Distinguished Scholars Program, a full scholarship for top high school students who attend in-state colleges. So Jackson Fitzgibbon started a MoveOn Petition┬áto Governor Mike Beebe. Thanks to the show of support from parents and students across the state, Governor Beebe signed into law the appropriations bill for the Arkansas Department of Higher Education, officially funding the scholarship program for 300 deserving recipients.
