Victory Media, the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has named Central Baptist College to the coveted Military Friendly Schools ® list. The 2013 Military Friendly Schools ® list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus. “Inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools ® shows Central Baptist College’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, Director for G.I. Jobs and Vice President at Victory Media. “As interest in education grows we’re thrilled to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools,” said Collins. The 1,739 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience. These schools have world-class programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility, and other services to those who served. CBC President Terry Kimbrow said, “We have a strong commitment to our men and women in the military and will continue to do whatever it takes to honor their service to our country. It is a distinct privilege to be included on this list.” CBC offers an Associate of Science degree in Military Technologies with locations in Conway and in North Little Rock at Camp Robinson. To admitted students, CBC also offers the following benefits to our service men and women: Full time advisers on staff, process enrollment certifications for VA GI Bill Education, Federal Tuition Assistance, tuition discounts for qualifying soldiers, free evaluations of AARTS/SMARTS transcript, and participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program.

Livingston Evangelism Endowed Scholarship Friends of A.D. & Mary K. Livingston recently established an Evangelism Endowed Scholarship at Central Baptist College. The scholarship was set up anonymously by friends of the Livingstons to honor their devotion to the ministry and Bro. A.D’s long time service as an evangelist. The Livingston’s were married for 67 years; Bro. Livingston served in the ministry for the last 58 years of his life. He served as a full-time evangelist for more than 14 years preaching in over 700 revival meetings in 14 different states. The A.D. & Mary K. Livingston Evangelism Endowed Scholarship will give priority to Bible major students with emphasis in evangelism who are members of a BMA of Arkansas church with a junior or senior status. As with all of the endowed scholarships at the institution, the $20,000 donation has been placed in the permanent endowment. The principal will never be spent; only the interest will be awarded as scholarships. The scholarship will be awarded by vote of the College scholarship committee, taking into account the qualifications and eligibility of the applicants as detailed in the scholarship agreement. “What an appropriate way to honor the life of God’s faithful servants,” said CBC President Terry Kimbrow. “Only heaven knows the impact the Livingston’s ministry will have.” Friends and churches are encouraged to add to the Livingston Evangelism Endowed Scholarship. Send your tax deductible donations to Central Baptist College, 1501 College Avenue, Conway, AR 72034 or contact the CBC Office of Advancement at 501-205-8799.
