High school students representing 21 hometowns across Arkansas were able to attend on-campus, no-cost summer academic programs this summer at UALR’s Donaghey College of Engineering and Information Technology (EIT), thanks in part to a $40,000 grant from the AT&T Foundation.
A new scholarship at the UALR William H. Bowen School of Law will honor the late U.S. District Court Judge George Howard Jr. of Pine Bluff, the first African American federal district judge in Arkansas and one of the “Six Pioneers” who racially integrated the law school at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville.
Four UALR students will benefit this year from scholarships established by father and son benefactors of UALR.
Members of the law enforcement community will join students, faculty, and colleagues of Dr. Charles Chastain for a reception and dinner at the Arkansas Governor’s Mansion May 17 to celebrate the UALR professor of criminal justice, who has been a guiding force in the department since the program was established 1973.
Harold and Syble Gwatney, parents of the late state senator and Democratic Party chair Bill Gwatney, have presented UALR with an additional gift of $50,000 to increase the endowment of a political science scholarship in their son’s memory.
