"Transforming Lives Through Quality Learning Experiences"

Arch Fund Donation
Published: November 19 2015

Carol Johnson,

vice chancellor for Institutional Advancement at Arkansas State

University-Beebe recently received a $1,200 check from Dewitt Yingling,

community executive and vice president of lending at Simmons First National

Bank, to be used toward the Rebuild the Arch fund. The arch was destroyed by a

storm in April 2011, and was an important landmark at ASU-Beebe. The new

arch is scheduled to begin construction in early December. “We are

thankful for great community partners like Simmons Bank who are helping us to rebuild our

arch so that ASU-Beebe once again has a signature landmark,” Johnson said.

“Our new arch will be all brick and should be completed by the

time students return for the spring semester in January.”
