Optus Roots For The Boys (and Girls) Of Summer

JONESBORO - Northeast Arkansas families can now root for their favorite t-ball player at the Optus T-Ball Field at Joe Mack Campbell Athletic Complex in Jonesboro.

Optus, Inc., headquartered in Jonesboro, contributed $15,000 to the City of Jonesboro to develop the field. "I have a toddler of my own and understand how important it is to have a safe place for kids to play," said Mark Duckworth, founder and CEO of Optus, Inc. "We are thrilled Optus was able to make this t-ball field a reality."

A dedication was held at Joe Mack Campbell Athletic Complex between Hwy 63 and Dan Ave. in Jonesboro on July 12th.  Area businesses provided food and those attending had a chance to win Cardinals vs. Braves tickets.
