Each time I read a recruits comments when they first visit or these days Zoom, I always hear some of the same things. They are surprised that we have all the bells and whistles that everyone else has. What are we? Backwoods? Barefoot and Pregnant? Out Houses?
Granted “after” they visit they see we are a beautiful place with all the shiny things the others have as well.
It just sometimes burns my backside that there is still this “hick” perception about Arkansas. I’m sure part of it is pumped out there by those recruiting against us, but part of it seems to be a nation-wide perception as well.
Ahh… well… rant over.
