Scott Ford's big gift to Ark. Baptist

Posted By on Fri, Jun 13, 2008 at 1:31 PM

I had lunch with someone who attended the fund-raiser at UALR last night for Arkansas Baptist College. "Did you hear that [Alltel CEO] Scott Ford gave $2.5 million to build a dorm?" he asked.

I had not.

No need to make a phone call. Jim Harris at Arkansas Business has the report on Ford's gift, for a men's dorm to be named after the college's athletic director and basketball coach, Charles Ripley. The event otherwise raised $100,000. Autographed Darren McFadden footballs were going for $200 a pop, we heard.
