SHOUTOUTS! AR CO-ED ROLLER DERBY & SINGLE PARENT SCHOLARSHIP FUND 

We have a few shoutouts we want to give.   

First up, is the Arkansas Coed Roller Derby. The team recently competed at nationals in Texas. 10 teams from across the country took to the rink to skate it out.

According to a press release the team’s goal entering the championships was not to just gain experience but to get into the top 5, and put NWA on the map for co-ed roller derby.

The team was able to rallie together and they did place 5th in the championship. That means our local NWA team is ranked 5th in the U.S. A big congrats to the team. You can see the team in action on August 28th at Starlight Skatium for their next home game.

Also over the weekend, the Single Parent Scholarship Fund of NWA hosted a back-to-school supply drive-through event for their Fall 2022 recipients.

Parents were able to pick school supplies and mini stipends to assist with back-to-school supplies for the upcoming school year, along with other giveaways and ice cream from sponsors and donors.

If you’re a single parent and want to continue your education applications for the Spring 2023 semester will open on Aug. 15.
