The Pea Ridge School board hired two em­ploy­ees and en­tered into agree­ment with an ar­chi­tect on a build­ing pro­gram. Su­per­in­ten­dent An­drew Wi­dener an­nounced that Allen Ken­ni­son was hired as a bus driver to re­place C.L. Mor­gan, who re­signed. Floyd McGinnis was hired as as­sis­tant cus­to­dian in charge of the el­e­men­tary school to re­place Mrs. W.H. Thomas, who passed away ear­lier this month. With all mem­bers of the board in at­ten­dance, the of­fi­cial school body ap­proved agree­ment with the ar­chi­tect on plans for an ad­di­tion to be built onto the el­e­men­tary school.

The fi­nal fig­ures from the Pea Ridge PTA Car­ni­val were still be­ing tab­u­lated early this week to de­ter­mine how close the El­e­men­tary School Roof Fund is to its goal. The Roof Fund goal is $18,400. The money will be used to pay for re­place­ment of the roofs on two el­e­men­tary build­ings. Roof Fund Steer­ing Com­mit­tee Chair­man Mike Free­man said that the fund to­tal had reached $16,493.99 as of Mon­day, but he said that fig­ure did not in­clude pro­ceeds from the car­ni­val. El­e­men­tary School Prin­ci­pal Ozy Mur­phey said Tues­day that the car­ni­val took in $2,354, but “$300 of that was change” and will have to be re­turned.

The Pea Ridge Black­hawk March­ing Band at­tended their third and fi­nal march­ing con­test of the season Satur­day, Oct. 22, in Seneca, Mo. They com­peted with schools from Arkansas and Mis­souri and walked away with three awards.

Fri­day night the Black­hawks put on a foot­ball clinic when they trav­eled to Green­land, win­ning 600. This im­proved their records to 7-2-0 in con­fer­ence play. The Hawks, with their pun­ish­ing de­fense and pow­er­ful of­fense, pounded the Pi­rates into sub­mis­sion.
