Rebuild the Arch Fund Donation
Published: June 23 2014

Donnie Miller of Regions Bank North Central-West Central Arkansas president, and Jamie Mobley, vice president of  Regions Bank at Searcy, recently presented $1,000 to Dr. Keith Pinchback, vice chancellor for Institutional Advancement at Arkansas State University-Beebe, 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.

Previously located near the sidewalk that leads to the Ruth Couch Center and to the Admissions Building, the base of the semicircular arch was made of sandstone material with iron work across the top. 

The arch was thought to have been constructed in the late 1950s by J. Ernest Howell and students, and was first seen in the 1961 yearbook.
