Presidents Award

The first Presidents Award was given in 1987 to a UALR graduate who achieved success in their career, donated time and talents to their community, and remained in touch with their alma mater as a volunteer and resource person. The Presidents Award is designed to annually salute a graduate who combines career success with dedication to UALR.
