By Submitted, 05/4/18 5:14 PM

Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson was in Hope Friday May 4th to deed over a portion of the old Migrant Education Center to the county. The facility will be utilized as a “Juvenile Behavior Center” for young people. The development of the facility will mean young people, in many cases, will not have to be held in a youth facility as far away as Batesville or Mansfield. The facility will have to undergo some renovations before it can be utilized but ultimately will be a boon to law enforcement agencies in Southwest Arkansas. The facility will also result in a number of new jobs.
