‘THV11 in Your Town’ feature: Arkadelphia

‘THV11 in Your Town’ feature: Arkadelphia

ARKADELPHIA, Ark. (KTHV) – For my second THV 11 in My Town feature, I headed out to Arkadelphia for a day and found quite a few great things to highlight.

ARKADELPHIA ALLIANCE AND DEMOGRAPHICS

First, I stopped by the Arkadelphia Alliance (Arkadelphia Regional Economic Development Alliance and Area Chamber of Commerce if you’re not into that whole brevity thing). There, executive vice president Shelley Loe talked to me about some of the great features in Arkadelphia and what the city had to offer.

If you’re into numbers, the city is home to around 10,714 citizens with 3,736 households as of the 2010 census. (See demographics info: http://on.kthv.com/1hwqnsh) It also offers two accredited 4-year institutions – Henderson State University and Ouachita Baptist University, and the area is home to three school districts—Arkadelphia, Gurdon, and Centerpoint.
