Lovin' Arms Learning Center on Smith Road in Hope had a very distinguished visitor on Tuesday December 13th. Santa Claus paid a visit to the children at Lovin' Arms in the form of Larry Jefferson. Jefferson was recently chosen to be the first Multi-Cultural Santa at the Maill of America in Minnesota. "Santa Larry" is a 1982 graduate of Nashville High School, a former Scrapper football player, and a graduate of Henderson State University in Arkadelphia. He is in much demand for his Santa duties and was recently featured on the Steve Harvey Show and NPR. Jefferson is a school friend of Lovin' Arms' Jamie Randel and his visit delighted the children!
