Words cannot express my sincere gratitude for your support and diligent efforts in achieving a victory Tuesday for the Arkansas Higher Education Technology and Facility Improvement Act of 2005, also known as the higher education bond initiative.
As a result of the election, Pulaski Technical College will receive $6.25 million for much-needed capital improvements. Our projects will include construction of a new hangar/classroom complex at our Aviation Technology Center at the North Little Rock Airport and renovation of buildings on the North Little Rock campus for more classroom and science laboratory space.
We expect the legislature to appropriate funds for these projects in the spring, and we hope to begin construction and renovation as early as next fall.
Again, I want to thank and commend you for your outstanding efforts. We hope this will be the first of many funding victories for our college in the months and years to come.
My very best,
Dan F. Bakke, Ed.D
