Posted 20 Oct 2009
Union Pacific Foundations support of public television at AETN over the years has been instrumental in helping us create and broadcast quality, educational local programs that make a difference in peoples lives, AETN Foundation COO Mona Dixon said. We appreciate their long-standing partnership that helps bring programs of significance to communities throughout Arkansas.
The Union Pacific Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Union Pacific Corporation and Union Pacific Railroad.
Union Pacific believes that the quality of life in the communities in which its employees live and work is an integral part of its own success. We support AETN because they offer the resources to our communities accomplishing this goal, Tessier said. We believe AETN really does make a difference.
The AETN Foundation exists solely to raise funds necessary to support the programs and services that AETN provides to Arkansans.
The Arkansas Educational Television Network (www.aetn.org) provides lifelong learning opportunities, improves and enhances Arkansans lives and celebrates the unique culture of Arkansas through its programming and services. AETNs transmitters and numerous cable system connections give it statewide reach.
