The Arkansas Alumni Association has been a part of the Office of Annual Giving’s All In for Arkansas giving day since its inception. This year, the Association raised over $35,000 to support Association, Chapter and Society scholarships and programs. So, it’s not surprising that when Alumni Past President Kenny Gibbs (BSBA ’85) shared his vision for a scholarship endowment with several Alumni Past Presidents, Lawson Hembree (BSA ’82) suggested using All In for Arkansas as a platform to start the scholarship. Hembree, the Association’s 75th president, made the first challenge gift.
Past President Kenny Gibbs also shared his passion about scholarship support with the Past Presidents, which inspired Hembree and other presidents to raise over $10,000 to begin the scholarship through All In.
Because of All In for Arkansas this year, the Past Presidents Endowed Scholarship is becoming a reality—all by those who are… “the pride of our hearts that are loyal and true.” Thank you.
