Byron Barger, assistant manager at the UA Little Rock Bookstore, has just achieved something that few in the workforce do nowadays, having worked and retired from the same place for his entire working career.
“I enjoyed working at the university all these years,” Barger said. “When we became Barnes & Noble, we were still part of the university family. That is the way Barnes & Noble wanted it to be, for us to see familiar faces on campus. I enjoyed working with the university. They took good care of us over the years.”
Barger grew up in Mabelvale and first joined the bookstore after graduating from John McClellan High School in 1976.
