Alexis Hosticka of Arkansas Business reports
that the Board of Pulaski Tech
voted unanimously today to join the University of Arkansas System
. The UA Board of Trustees must vote to seal the deal.
Among other comments was Board member Ron Dedman's
remark that the North Little Rock-based two-year college would remain true to its mission, which has included a broad emphasis on workforce training.
A former long-time Pulaski Tech Board member, John Barnes, had raised that concern in a letter we published earlier this week.
