Tony’s Tips from AVECC Safety Tip –Periodically inspect your Dryer vent to insure it is not blocked. This will save energy and will help prevent a fire. Manufactures recommend using riged venting material-not plastic vents that may collapse and cause blockage.

Making a Mark Arts Society of Ozark

The Arts Society

OZARK – A new roof on the Technology and Academic Support Building as well as progress on the new Health Sciences and Wellness Building are not the only changes happening on campus this summer. New Program The Arkansas Tech University Board of Trustees in May approved a program proposal from Arkansas Tech-Ozark to create an Associate of Applied Science degree in logistics management. Arkansas Tech-Ozark currently offers a supply chain management option within the Associate of Applied Science degree in business technology. Pending approval from the Arkansas Department of Higher Education, the logistics management program will prepare students for careers in logistics. Logistics managers analyze and coordinate an organization’s supply chain, which is the system that moves product from suppliers to consumers, including how a product is acquired, distributed, allocated and delivered. Students will study the basic fundamentals of the industry including procurement, issues in executing global supply chains, logistics, manufacturing, warehousing and transportation. Other areas include business and project management, economics of supply and demand, business communication and data management.
