New on UA Board

Posted By on Wed, Mar 31, 2010 at 2:31 PM

Gov. Mike Beebe has appointed Mark Waldrip of Moro to the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees, succeeding Tim Hunt of Paragould in a seat representing the 1st Congressional District.


Governor Mike Beebe today named Mark Waldrip of Moro to the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees.

            "Mark credits his personal and professional success to the U of A, and he has worked to give back to his alma mater in every way he can," Beebe said. "He is a widely respected businessman in East Arkansas and will represent the First Congressional District well on the Board."

            Waldrip, 54, has served on the State Plant Board since 1997 and on the Arkansas Agriculture Board since 2005.  A 1977 U of A grad in Agricultural Economics and Business, Waldrip went on to build one of the largest seed companies in the region.  He is currently a member of the Arkansas Executive Forum at the Walton Business School in Fayetteville.

            Waldrip's wife and four children have all attended the University of Arkansas as well.

            The appointment replaces Tim Hill of Paragould, and expires March 1, 2020.
