PRESCOTT – Steve Roberts, the former head football coach at Southern Arkansas University and Arkansas State University, will be the keynote speaker at the Prescott-Nevada County Chamber of Commerce on April 25.

The banquet will be in the cafeteria at Prescott Junior High School, starting at 5:30 p.m. However, patrons are urged to come early and check out the items on the silent auction, as well as those for the live auction. Jamie Hillery, chamber director, said so far more than 80 items have been donated. There will be plenty of gift cards, along with game cameras, tickets to the Texas Rangers-St. Louis Cardinals baseball game, golf and fishing equipment, a homemade swing and weed eater. There will also be Curley Wolf and Nevada Blue Jay items available.

The Nevada County Ambulance Service is donating a Sub-2000 9mm rifle to be auctioned off, while Nevada County Sheriff Danny Martin’s donation will be won by a lucky participant in a card game.

Winners will be honored in these categories: Business Leader of the Year; Farm Family of the Year; Educator of the Year; Student of the Year; Organization of the Year; Treasure of Gold; Hometown Hero; and Citizen of the Year.
