The Saline County Career Center held an Open House on Aug. 23 so parents of students enrolled in the center's programs could meet the instructors and see the facilities.
Parents and grandparents of 47 students attended the open house from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the center in Bauxite.
"We viewed the Open House as a success," said Mary Jane Dove, director of the SCCC.
During the day, students from Benton, Bryant, Bauxite and Harmony Grove high schools attend daytime programs offered in cosmetology, automotive technology, automotive collision repair and medical professions education.

- Paul Ames of Benton, automotive technology.
- Matthew Magby of Benton automotive collision repair.
- Kenneth Roberts of Bryant, cosmetology instructor.
