Gov. Mike Beebe today appointed his chief of staff and longtime buddy Morril Harriman to the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees. He replaces Sam Hilburn, whose term has expired, for a 10-year term.

The release said:

"Morril has been my best friend and most trusted ally throughout my political career," Beebe said. "It comes as no surprise that he wants to continue his public service, and I am confident that the U of A Board will benefit from his experience and wisdom."

Harriman, 63, has served as Governor Beebe's Chief of Staff since Beebe took office in 2007. Prior to that, Harriman served 16 years in the Arkansas Senate. He earned both his bachelor and law degrees from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville.
