YEA! is a program that takes students between the ages of 11-18 through the process of starting and launching a real business or social movement over the course of an academic year. By the end of the class, students own and operate fully-formed and functioning businesses, which may be carried on after their graduation from the program. YEA! aims to teach students at an early age how to make a job, not just take a job.
One of the great episodic historic events in Arkansas happened in downtown El Dorado, Ark., in 1902. The Tucker-Parnell Feud happened quickly on the Union Court House Square at about 4:30 p.m. on the afternoon of Oct. 9, 1902, which left three people dead and created a long-running feud which claimed many lives in its aftermath. There were complicated implications from the grand jury and some of the participants were banished outside the state. For many years following, a reaffirmed silence covered up the story.
