Kristy Jones Caldwell and Marie Walker represented COPH at the expo booth in search of the best and brightest students and also shared employment opportunities for open faculty positions.  They were joined by a host of students, faculty, friends, and others with Arkansas ties during the week.  This event serves as the largest, single recruitment effort for the college and this year proved to be another success.
