Proposed bill allows private school athletes on public school teams

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – A bill proposed by state lawmakers could have a huge impact on the classification of Arkansas high schools and their athletic programs.

House bill 1243 would allow private school students to enroll in an after school activity at their assigned public school if their own school doesn't offer it. THV11 spoke with students at Little Rock's Christ Lutheran grade school about the proposal. "I think it would be great if I could go to a public school and play soccer or hockey or something like that," said 4th grader Legna Cates. "It would be a dream come true for me."

Building a Workforce: Hot Jobs in 2015

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Lots of Americans will look to re-invent themselves in 2015.

Some instructors at Pulaski Technical College say from welding, to diesel technology, to the aerospace industry employers are starving for qualified workers.

"I've got a degree and I feel more comfortable knowing that I'll have this license, as far as job security goes, than I do with the degree," said Pulaski Tech student Joey Maggio.
