Metropolitan National Bank is expected to be acquired by a limited liability company tied to Dallas billionaire banker, Gerald L. Ford.
According to Metropolitan’s CEO Lunsford Bridges, the privately-held Little Rock bank will change ownership after a Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceeding of its current shareholder group, Rogers Bancshares. Rogers Bancshares was the holding company for the bank under the leadership of businessman Doyle Rogers, who died in February at the age of 94.
Six Arkansas families will address the Board of Education on Monday to request that children be transferred out of their home school districts.
The appeals are being made by parents in the Forrest City School District, whose arguments will be heard as part of the Arkansas Public School Choice Act. The legislation, signed into law in late April, allows students to transfer out of residential school districts, but education systems may deny requests if acceptance requires a physical expansion or hiring of additional faculty.
