Built in 1972 with five programs, the Career Center has undergone extensive remodeling and additions to become one of the largest secondary career and technical centers in Arkansas. The Career Center draws its 600-plus student enrollment from 11 area high schools in Pope, Yell and Johnson counties, including Russellville, Dover, Pottsville, Hector, Atkins, Dardanelle, Danville, Two Rivers, Western Yell County, Lamar and Clarksville high schools.
