On Thursday, November 9, 2017, the Board of Directors of Seis Puentes gathered with friends and supporters at the Argenta Community Theater to honor North Little Rock Police Chief Mike Davis as the 2017 Seis Puentes Community Appreciation Award recipient. Chief Davis works tirelessly to maintain a positive relationship between law enforcement personnel and our diverse communities here in North Little Rock. Whether it be by visiting our Educational Center on Camp Robinson Rd. to offer support and encouragement during times of concern over national immigration issues, or to educate us about Neighborhood Watch programs, or to celebrate the annual Neighborhood Night Out with us, Chief Davis has proven himself time and again to be a true friend of our community.
We also had the pleasure of awarding the 2017 Community Partner Award to Ed and Carla Baresch of Ed’s School of Dance. Ed and Carla currently run our youth dance program serving 24 students in Sherwood and Benton. The students train in classical ballet, tap, jazz, and tumbling. They receive a scholarship from Seis Puentes that covers the majority of their monthly tuition.
