The Community Education Center
The education center was a dream of Mayor Paul Wellenberger in 2009. Our city revitalization program included a long list of amenities already in place and a wish list of complimentary features to add. Paul contacted ASU Vice Chancellor Chris Boyett and voiced his dream about providing quality education and identified an unused facility that would make a perfect home for our non-profit center in the Village Mall at 120 Village Lane, Suite E, Fairfield Bay, AR 72008.
The Education Center was dedicated and opened for business in August of 2009.
Sherry Guess, Director and some very enthusiastic volunteers comprise the staff who are available to serve you Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.
We host a large group of home-schoolers each month as well as a group of 4-H members. Area adults and children all find something to do at the Education Center.
Fairfield Bay is also a vacation destination, so we serve up a nice assortment of one day classes such as Jewelry making, Oil Painting, Watercolor, Take Better Photos, Learn basic computer navigation tops and tricks, Greeting card making, Geocaching and more..
We are a non-profit education center that exists due to the generosity of area businesses, local residents and clubs.
