State Baseball Tournaments
CelebrationThe first set of billboards celebrating the Forrest City Mustangs basketball and track teams state championships have been put in place alongside I-40. The billboards honoring the 2016 Mustangs Class 5A state champion basketball team were put in place Saturday. The A&P Commission showed their support for the Forrest City students by funding both of the billboards celebrating the basketball team. The basketball billboards on I-40, one facing eastbound traffic and one facing westbound traffic, are located between the Highway. 1 Bypass and the North Washington exit. The two billboards celebrating the track championship are scheduled for installation next week. Submitted Photo
