Program Team Up to Market Community

Kyle Christopher, Tourism Director at the Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce, recently visited Julie Reardon and Jason Weaver’s EAST classes at Southside High School to discuss how students can create marketing pieces to help improve local tourism. Christopher discussed the importance of tourism to our local economy and the ways in which the students can help shine a light on the many assets of Independence County such as the Polk Bayou, Main Street Batesville, and the new Recreation and Aquatics Center.
