Position at NEARA to be filled
Lawrence County Historical Society President Lloyd Clark reports that the Department of Heritage has decided to fill the assistant position at the Northeast Arkansas Regional Archives with a full-time employee.
It was anticipated that the position would be filled with part-time employees, but Clark received word on Friday that the funding for the full-time position had been unfrozen and would be advertised instead of looking for part-time help.
In addition, funding for a full-time position at the Southwest Arkansas Regional Archives was also unfrozen.
"The jobs have been advertised with a closing date of March 24," Clark said.
He expressed that he believes this was the right decision as finding qualified part-time employees to fill the position at NEARA would have probably been difficult.
