Arkansans are “raised” with a work ethic that is rugged, from sunrise to sundown, and quitting time is when the project is complete. The Arkansas outdoor adventure lifestyle is a carrot that attracts talented people to live, work and play.
“I relocated to Clarksville as plant manager of a large manufacturing operation. Now that I am retired, I got everything I want- hunting, fishing, hiking and cycling; I live in an outdoor vacation land.”
– Chris Allen, Johnson County resident, former plant manager
