The 1st quarter of this fiscal year kicked off with the execution of a series of community-based events and activities. The Minority Initiative Sub-Recipient Grant Office and Addiction Studies Program at UAPB leveraged numerous opportunities to speak directly to the target audience via mediums they most often frequent and attend. We’re off to a great start!

- Staybridge Suites
- GMC Superior Automotive Group
- Dynasty Transportation
- And more!
July 28th - The 1st quarter also allowed the MISRGO team to participate in a new event – the First Annual Back to School Kids Fair. The Fair included free school supplies, backpacks, haircuts, immunizations, and physical examinations. It was an opportunity for the entire family and kids of all ages to enjoy games, face painting, jump zones, a balloon artist, vendors and much more!
For MISRGO, the Kids Fair was an avenue to educate parents and youth about Act 811 and the overall benefits of tobacco prevention and cessation with the help of two MISRGO sub-grantees (Women’s Council on African American Affairs and We Care of Pulaski County) and Arkansas State Trooper, Wanda James.
August 31st - MISRGO participated in the Delta Classic 4 Literacy “Old Skool” Concert once again this year. The event took place Friday, August 31st at the Statehouse Convention Center as part of the weekend-long activity line-up in support of the annual Delta Classic 4 Literacy football game. The Delta Classic 4 Literacy was designed to raise awareness about literacy improvement needs in the Delta region and raise money to fund literacy programs. Since 2006, $55,000 from the Delta Classic 4 Literacy has been donated to Arkansas Literacy Councils.
MISRGO served as a sponsor for this concert. This year’s concert attracted approximately 3,100 R&B music lovers from across the State of Arkansas.
