From criminal justice to IT: Eric Sanders carves out career
By Becca Bona
Although originally from San Francisco, Eric Sanders considers Arkansas to be his home. After moving here as a young boy, he found himself in the natural state to stay. He attended high school in Benton before making the trek to the University of Central Arkansas.
As a freshman he didnâ€™t know what he wanted to do, but after a full year he knew he wanted a career in criminal justice, which spurred his transfer to the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
â€śThatâ€™s where my UALR experience began,â€ť he said. From his office now, two large photographs on canvas adorn his walls â€“ one of the track at Oaklawn, and one of a nature scene. Pointing up at them he said, â€śI minored in art, and focused on photography.â€ť
