Entergy Pledges $25K to Help Local Students

LITTLE ROCK, AR - An Arkansas company is pledging to help local students achieve their goals after they graduate high school.

Today Entergy Arkansas announced it's donating $25,000 to "PARK."

It's an after school program that gives high-risk students better opportunities.

Former NFL player and Arkansas native Keith Jackson started PARK.

He says this donation will give students even more chances to succeed.

"When you look at Park you see all the basketball courts and all the bells and whistles but the core of what we do is straight academics and we bring in students and make sure they have an opportunity to further their career as going, as going to college," says Jackson.

PARK has been around for more than 20 years.

It has helped hundreds of Arkansas students who might not have been able to go to college.
