The Union Pacific Foundation recently donated $5,000 to the AETN Foundation to help support research, development and broadcast of locally focused programming in the state. This is the 22nd year that the Union Pacific Foundation has provided a grant to public television in Arkansas.

'We are honored to have Union Pacific as such a long standing partner,' Brooks said. 'And, we are gratified that Union Pacific recognizes the positive impact that public television programs and services make on the quality of life for Union Pacific employees and their families here in Arkansas.'

The AETN Foundation builds relationships between AETN, donors and viewers and is committed to being a transparent and accountable steward of private financial support.
