  • SCHOOL REVIEW: Baker Kurrus and Dexter Suggs at announcement of financial committee.

Interim Little Rock School Superintendent Dexter Suggs and Baker Kurrus, the former Little Rock School Board member named by Education Commissioner Tony Wood to work on district finances announced today a committee to assist in the work.

They'll review finances and develop a plan for long-term stability.

Did I say Library Director Bobby Roberts needed something to do?

The members:

Roger Ball, the CEO of Century Industries is a leader of the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce, which led the behind-the-scenes effort that led to the state takeover of the district.

Baker Kurrus, a lawyer and businesman with diverse interests.

Bruce Moore, the Little Rock city manager.

Peggy Nabors, a former president of the Arkansas Education Association.

Bobby Roberts, the library director

Verma Simmons. A retired state Human Services official.

Steve Strickland, a lawyer and retired Entergy executive.

Committee members will also make recommendations to the Superintendent of the Little Rock School District and the Arkansas Commissioner of Education (acting in the role of school board), which are designed to balance the Little Rock School District budget in support of the District's long-term financial stability. The committee will endeavor to recommend actions which allow the District to meet its goals as outlined in its Strategic Plan.
