ASU-Newport Chancellor retires

NEWPORT, AR (KAIT) - A reception was held on the Arkansas State University-Newport campus to pay tribute to Chancellor, Dr. Larry N. Williams.

Friday afternoon was spent by state, community and university leaders honoring Dr. Williams for his years of service at ASU-Newport. Dr. Williams said his time as Chancellor has meant a lot to him.

"Probably my favorite memory comes on graduation nights when you see the glow in the students face and the proud moments of parents at graduation," said Williams.

"The largest impact has not been on me on ASU-Newport, but the impact the students have made on our respective communities by becoming students, graduates and alumni."

One of the presentations made was to officially name the Student Community Center after Dr. Williams.
