Paragould, AR --Since school is out for the summer, kids could be doing anything with their free time. However; some local kids are back in school and they like it.

Kids College is in session at Black River Technical College. The classes are for kids ages 6-11. They go to class from 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. all week. They change classes every hour just like real college students. During the day they play games and meet professionals from around the area. So far the Arkansas Wildlife Association, firefighters and EMT's have all visited the campus. The teachers are a mix of Black River employees and volunteers.

There's another kids camp at the Black River campus in Pocahontas. It's too late to sign up for this year's Kids College, but there's always next year.
