“I love to write, and I believe it’s essential for everyone to find their voice.”
Clark Harris originally visited the UALR campus, not for an education, but for a job in custodial services.
When he was advised that a large percentage of his tuition at UALR would be covered, he began to reconsider his path.
“I looked at education as a gateway to doing what I want to do. A lot of my professors have helped me along the way,” Harris said.
Harris, a recent graduate with a degree in English, said his dream is to become a university professor. He is currently pursuing his master’s degree at UALR.
“I love to write, and I believe it’s essential for everyone to find their voice,” he said.

Today Harris is a graduate assistant in the UALR Academic Success Center’s reading lab, mentoring students five days a week.
“I love what I do while earning my masters in writing,” he concluded.
