    Kyria Seymour of Jonesboro died Saturday, April 19, at LeBonheur Children's Hospital in Memphis, TN. A memorial fund has been created for an 11-year-old girl who died after she became trapped beneath a pipe in a water-filled ditch for 20 minutes.

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Governor Mike Beebe announced Thursday the appointment of Dr. Tim Langford of Little Rock to a five-year term on the Arkansas State University Board of Trustees.

A 1983 graduate of ASU, Langford succeeds Mike Gibson of Osceola who served 10 years on the board.

"I'm so grateful for the chance to serve the ASU System," Langford stated in an email.  "The momentum of Arkansas State and our community colleges is strong, and I'm excited about the opportunity to be part of it in this new role.  I know that our best days are ahead."

Langford, 53, is an urologist in Little Rock.  He has been with Arkansas Urology since 1993.  He has also served on the Arkansas Higher Education Coordinating Board since 2012.

Langford was an All-Southland Conference quarterback for ASU from 1980 to 1983 under former Head Coach Larry Lacewell.  In 2004, Langford and his wife, Terri, donated $250,000 to the athletics program to help furnish and refurbish what is now the Tim and Terri Langford Sports Medicine Center.  He was inducted into the A-State football Ring of Honor in 2008.
