Change in Razorback Foundation leadership

Sean Rochelle is stepping down as executive director of the Razorback Foundation effect Sept. 1 to take a job with Vold Vision in Fayetteville. A successor hasn't been announced. Details here. Rochelle held the job for a bit more than two years.

The Foundation serves as a way to extend tax deductions for people who pay premiums for football and other Razorback sports tickets and also as a way to shield much of the money raising and spending from public view, apart from annual federal tax statements.

At some major universities, all fund-raising activities have been consolidated and obviously — as opposed to discreetly and indirectly — controlled by university officials. The person selected as the next director might reflect how effective Athletic Director Jeff Long has been in extending his leadership over this nominally private and independent operator. It is, of course, anything but.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
