What Bert Has To Say About Jonesboro Metro Area

Crops grown nearby include cotton and rice in addition to standards like corn and soybeans. “A State” is the state “ag” school bringing in 16,500 students and a modern college town presence superimposed on this rather typical Southern small town. But for a college town, Jonesboro has a low level of educational attainment.
