KEVIN has established a great track record of success in LITTLE ROCK and I am very confident he will build upon the winning results being delivered by LISA RICE and her team. KEVIN is inheriting the best sales staff, programming minds and support staff in the market. His experience with our successful LITTLE ROCK cluster will play well here. At the same time we say goodbye to LISA RICE who has done a stellar job managing our TALLAHASSEE properties over the last few years.
