No, I’m not mis-spelling S-E-C and I’m not talking football. I-E-C is shorthand for Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center — a brand-spanking new program that made its public debut yesterday. Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe was on hand to help dedicate the Center, run by my friend Michelle Hall.
At the dedication, Governor Beebe said this:
“You’re ability to put innovation and entrepreneurship together will put you so far ahead of anyone else in Arkansas,” he said. “It will put Fort Smith ahead of the pack.”
That’s the plan, Stan. Er, Governor Beebe.
