Former President Bill Clinton coming to Springdale Aug. 11

The most famous Arkansan who ever lived in Arkansas (or the world) is coming back to town next month.

Former President Bill Clinton will be the keynote speaker at the Aug. 11 Economics Arkansas luncheon at the Holiday Inn Convention Center in Springdale to speak about the importance of education.

Economics Arkansas is a private, non-profit, educational organization committed to increasing the economic literacy of K-12 students in Arkansas.

In other words, their mission is to teach school-age kids “to think and choose responsibly as individuals, consumers, savers, investors, citizens, members of the workforce, and to be effective participants in both their local communities and the global economy.”

The event begins at 11:30 a.m. with check-in at 11 a.m. Individual tickets are $100, but you can shell out more dough for a private table if you want.
