More than 50 years ago, Dr. Archibald Ford, Commissioner of the Arkansas Department of Education, had a vision: K-12 economic literacy would benefit individual lives and the state. With Dr. Bessie B. Moore, he founded the Arkansas State Council on Economic Education, which is Economics Arkansas today. His son Joe Ford and grandson Scott Ford have made significant contributions to Arkansas's economy by embracing economic and free market principles.
It is Economics Arkansas's privilege and honor to present the Leadership in Free Enterprise Award to the Ford family, to be accepted by Joe Ford and Scott Ford. Join us for this gala event on
Thursday, April 30, 2015, 11.30 am to 1 pm,
Little Rock Marriott, 3 Statehouse Plaza.
Warren Stephens of Stephens Inc. will deliver the keynote address.
