Pulaski Technical College Foundation participating in #GivingTuesdayAR on Dec. 1

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Pulaski Technical College Foundation will participate in #GivingTuesdayAR on Dec. 1, a day that focuses on holiday giving rather than holiday spending.

At PTC, more than 60 percent of students rely on financial aid through scholarships, grants and loans, while 90 percent work full- or part-time. With a somewhat small allocation from the state, tuition and fees must generate almost half of Pulaski Tech’s operating costs, whereas most colleges’ student fees account for a mere 20 percent of their budgets.

Man convicted in teen's death in court Monday

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- A Little Rock man convicted of killing a teenage girl during a prank is expected to be in court on Monday morning.

Willie Noble is currently serving a 30-year sentence in the shooting death of 15-year-old Adrian Broadway.

According to Noble's attorney, they are asking the court to declare Noble "indigent" because he cannot afford the cost of the appeal.

If the judge agrees, the state will help pay for fees associated with the appeal process,including the costs of records and attorney fees.

Broadway died when Noble shot at a group of teens who he says were vandalizing his son's car last February.

Habitat for Humanity volunteers raise the roof


MAUMELLE, Ark. (KTHV) – A Maumelle Family got some help on Saturday in getting a new home.

Habitat for Humanity organized volunteers from CHI St. Vincent and the Air Force to put trusses on a home being built for Monique Reneau and her family.

This part of putting up a house has an easy way and a hard way, and for volunteers sometimes the hard way is the fun way.

“We're raising trusses and as you can see it can be a lot of fun. You can hire a crane to do this or you can get a bunch of good people to come out and help you and put it up with rope,” said Bill Plunkett with Habitat for Humanity of Central Arkansas.

Reneau is a single mother of two, and in addition to helping build the house, Habitat for Humanity helps families like hers secure zero-interest loans for the mortgage.
