Learning from a mentor
“From Alan Jessup I’ve learned two things: 1) People are people. Everyone has a story, and if you take the time to hear it, you’ll be better for it. 2) Be patient. Sometimes the best thing to do is nothing.”
Best thing about Arkansas
“Easily, the best thing about Arkansas is the Cave City Watermelon Festival, held every July in the ‘home of the world’s sweetest watermelons.’”
