Harrison lawyer Ken Reeves appointed to Game and Fish Commission

As predicted here yesterday, a Harrison lawyer was appointed today to the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, keeping intact the powerful commission's all-white male composition. From Beebe's office:

Governor Mike Beebe has named Ken Reeves of Harrison as the newest commissioner of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.

"Ken grew up hunting and fishing in the natural beauty of North Arkansas, and has experienced our entire State's outdoor destinations that need to be both enjoyed and conserved. His lifetime of legal experience will also serve him well as matters come before the Commission requiring thoughtful and objective review."

Reeves, 65, is a Vice President and General Counsel for FedEx Freight in Harrison. He earned both his undergraduate and law degrees at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. A fisherman on Bull Shoals Lake since childhood, Reeves is also an avid turkey hunter, and enjoys hunting duck, deer, squirrel and quail.

A veteran of the Arkansas Army National Guard, Reeves has been a member of the National Wild Turkey Federation, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and Ducks Unlimited.

Reeves' term will expire July 1, 2020. He replaces Ronald Pierce of Mountain Home.
