[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E1774] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] RECOGNIZING UNIVERSITY OF THE OZARKS FOR ITS SPECIAL NEEDS PROGRAM ______ HON. JOHN BOOZMAN of arkansas in the house of representatives Tuesday, September 28, 2010 Mr. BOOZMAN. Madam Speaker, I rise today to recognize and congratulate the University of the Ozarks for its work with students with special needs. The Clarksville, Arkansas university earned national attention and was named by Parade Magazine to its ``College A-List'' for its efforts to help college students with learning disabilities. Established in 1971, the University of the Ozark's Jones Center was one of the first centers in the nation created to assist college students with learning disabilities or attention deficit/hyperactivity disorders. The center has a student to faculty rate of 4 to 1 which allows the center to provide students with the best services available so they can achieve the results they are capable of. Jones Learning Center Director Linda Frost says this recognition confirms the dedication and commitment of staff to providing students with comprehensive support that allow all students to succeed. This is a great honor for the staff and the students. Having such innovative leaders in the classroom provides an opportunity for all students to get the education they deserve. I am proud of the efforts of the Jones Learning Center and the University of the Ozarks and wish them success in the future as education leaders work to meet the needs of all students. I look forward to recognizing its future successes. ____________________
