Wilson Trade School honored with historic marker ceremony

It's a story you probably haven't heard.

A small town in Arkansas was able to make a huge impact on families in the Mid-South who weren't given a chance in many other places.

Now more than a half century after it opened, the Wilson Trade School in Wilson, Arkansas is finally getting the recognition it deserves.

University of Arkansas History Professor Dr. Jeannie Whayne stopped by with Jennifer Pitts, a former student of the trade school, to talk about the impact it's making on people's lives.
