Gov. Asa Hutchinson recently appointed a University of Arkansas at Little Rock alumnus to serve on a new statewide group tasked with preventing suicide.

Bruce Trimble, a graduate of UALR’s College of Social Sciences and Communication, joins the Arkansas Suicide Prevention Council, which was formed this year in an effort to put an end to suicide throughout the state.

Trimble, director of business development at The BridgeWay Hospital in North Little Rock, will be one of more than 20 members of the Suicide Prevention Council.

He also serves on the UALR Speech Communication Development Council, which created the Dr. Angela Laird Brenton Endowment Scholarship — the first-ever private scholarship endowment for the university’s speech communication department.

The fund was named in memory of a former dean of the UALR College of Professional Studies.

In April, the Public Relations Society of America’s Arkansas chapter honored Trimble with the 2015 Crystal Award. The award recognizes chapter members for their significant and consistent contributions to the public relations profession.
