"Lyon (Ark.) College Athletic Director Kevin Jenkins visited with the Batesville Chapter of Kiwanis Club Friday to update them on how the program is doing in its first few months of moving into a new division of college athletics, from National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics to National Collegiate Athletic Association Division III.
