Delta Visual Arts Show, Feb. 27, 2010 in Newport, Arkansas

Posted on February 11, 2010 at 06:51 PM

We would encourage people to attend the 2nd Annual Delta Visual Arts Show in Newport, Arkansas on Feb. 27, 2010. This is another example of the many meritorious field service projects the Clinton School of Public Service is working on in the Delta. The Dean of the Clinton School, Skip Rutherford will be our host for the opening session of the Delta conference in Little Rock on April 1, 2010.

A Clinton School graduate student, William Jeter, is doing a great job on this project and he will be one of our speakers at the April 1-2, 2010 conference at the Clinton Presidential Center. We need to include some young leaders for the future in the Delta Grassroots Caucus’ activities, and we see a new group of fine young leaders every year come to the Clinton School. A message about the Feb. 27 event is below. Thanks–Lee Powell, MDGC (202) 360-6347
