Chancellor's Inaugural Raises $3,725 For General Scholarship Fund

MONTICELLO, AR — The inauguration of Chancellor Karla Hughes has raised $3,725 for the general scholarship fund at the University of Arkansas at Monticello, according to the most recent figures released by the chancellor's office.

            Ticket sales from the inaugural dinner held in October plus a donation from Dan Boice, director of UAM's Taylor Library and Technology Center, and Dr. Sharon Silzell, assistant professor of history, pushed the total amount designated for scholarships to its current level. Additional funds will be added from the sale of a commemorative print created by Lesa Cathey Handley of Little Rock, who was UAM's 49th Distinguished Alumnus. A limited number of 11" x 14" signed and numbered prints are available for $50 with proceeds directed to the scholarship fund.
