   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.
