The Crawford County Adult Education Center (CCAEC) Introduction to Craft Skills class has been busy at work creating handcrafted projects for local use.  As a part of the coursework, students complete classroom work, as well as several building projects. With guidance and support from Lumber One, Harold Hamm Construction and Elite Roofing, students recently completed a storage building that has been donated to Van Buren School District Tennis team. Coach Brandy Mosby received the storage building from the Crawford County Adult Education Center and the students of the Craft Skills class. Materials for the project were donated by Lumber One.

2017 Iverson Riggs Memorial Citizen of the Year

Our Director Dr. Debbie Faubus-Kendrick was named 2017 Iverson Riggs Memorial Citizen of the Year!

The Iverson Riggs Memorial Citizen of the Year Award was created in 1987 to honor the memory of Iverson Riggs, founder and publisher of the Van Buren Courier newspaper. This award is given to an individual (s) who has made exemplary contributions of time, talent or resources to our community. By honoring our outstanding individuals, we are recognizing the integrity and behavior that build a quality community like Van Buren.

Commitment to community service is the catalysis of change and growth. Previous citizens who have been honored by this award have been leaders who have challenged both themselves and the community to be better and to make a difference in the lives of others. Previous award recipients are leaders, but they are also everyday citizens who go above and beyond the everyday requirements. They define community service and have given freely of their time, talent or treasure. They are thinkers and they are doers. They make us proud.

Congratulations Dr. Faubus! We are so very proud of you!

Congratulations Vincennes University Graduates!

Thursday, December 3, 2015 we honored our first group of graduates from the Vincennes University Van Buren campus. The ceremony was held at the VBSD Fine Arts Center and fifteen graduates were awarded their degree. Distinguished guests and faculty celebrated this momentous occasion with the graduates, family, and friends. 

Darlene Lambdin created a painting for the Crawford County Adult Education Center depicting the building’s sign and an open window promising a bright future to potential students. She presented her painting to CCAEC Director, Dr. Debbie Faubus-Kendrick as a thank you for the work of the Center. Lambdin spent time at CCAEC when her granddaughter was studying for Arkansas High School Diploma. She said that she enjoyed watching staff work with the public and provide excellent customer to students and the community. Lambdin said of the Center, “If you’ve reached a fork in the road in your life, this is the place to be.” Her granddaughter completed classes and official GED® testing in 2012. Lambdin said that she never forgot how the Center really embraced each person that came through the doors.
