The Carl Albert State College regents will meet today [April 14} at the Poteau campus.
Items on the agenda include discussion about tuition and meal rate increases and employment status of all employees.
According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Barbara Montgomery, 43, of Red Oak was killed Friday night in a four-car accident east of Fanshawe.
The accident report shows a 2012 Nissan driven by a Poteau woman east on U.S. Highway 270 failed to see another car stopped to make a left hand turn. When the driver of the Nissan took evasive action by entering the westbound lane she struck head on a 2005 Dodge that Montgomery was a passenger in, according to the accident report.
The Pocola Quarterback Club held a garage sale and participated in the Dodge test drive event Saturday raising $4,600 to help the school's football players attend training camps.
