EDUCATIONAL ALLIANCE – UPDATE
The Education Pillar of GFPB, Inc. began with two clear objectives:
- To develop primary and secondary educational institutions that are academically and financially sound;
- To improve the educational options provided by our high schools and institutions of higher education to meet the specific needs of the employers of Pine Bluff and surrounding areas.
The Education Pillar created L.E.A.P. (Leadership, Education, Accountability, Pipeline) to achieve its purpose. The purpose of the Educational Alliance is to develop and implement the L.E.A.P. (Leadership, Education, Accountability, Pipeline) initiative as recommended by the Education Pillar of GFPB, Inc.
On October 18, 2017, the Board of Directors voted to establish the Educational Alliance Committee.
The Educational Alliance Committee held its first meeting on November 28th, 2017
