Several University of Arkansas at Little Rock staff recently earned communications awards from the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education, an international association of education institutions.
In addition, Associate Vice Chancellor for Alumni and Development Christian O’Neal, who leads the UALR Alumni Association, was re-elected state director for District IV of CASE. The district represents 2,904 members from 261 higher education institutions in Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas.
“CASE is the standard bearer for public support of education, and I’m thrilled to be asked by my Arkansas colleagues to serve in a leadership role for the organization,” O’Neal said.
UALR Vice Chancellor for Advancement Bob Denman earned the CASE Crystal Apple Award for outstanding teaching, a sign that he has “shared his or her expertise generously.” The award is given to those judged to be “stellar speakers” at 10 or more different CASE conferences.
