Southeast Arkansas College’s new president, Steven Bloomberg, will be honored in a reception from 4-5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 31, at the Economic Development Alliance for Jefferson County, 510 Main St.

The event will be held in conjunction with SEARK. The purpose is to further introduce Bloomberg to the wider community and business leaders, according to the Alliance.

“A boardroom filled with welcoming guests is expected. The guests will come and go. But it’s ‘first come, first served’ on the refreshments,” according to the Alliance.
