MONTICELLO, AR — Jeff Taylor likes a challenge. As an 18-year-old freshman at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, Taylor flunked his first three chemistry exams, not terribly surprising for an English major who had no chemistry at Mountain View High School. So what did Taylor do? He changed his major from English to chemistry. “English was boring,” says Taylor. “I was good at it, but I wanted a challenge.”
Family, friends and colleagues of the late Dr. Robert H. Burch, Jr. have begun a campaign to create a waterfowl research endowment in the University of Arkansas at Monticello Foundation Fund.
Forget the plush oval-shaped office, complete with a matching oval desk and oval chandelier above. Forget the wood paneled walls surrounding a work space large enough for three high level executives.
