ASU Grad to Preside Over Southern Leadership Conference

JULY 28, 2005 - Posted at 7:55 a.m. CDT

LITTLE ROCK, AR - For the first time in more than 20 years, an Arkansan will preside over a session of the Southern Leadership Conference.

The organization of Southern legislators opens its 2005 conference Saturday in Mobile, Alabama, and state Senator Shane Broadway of Bryant was elected chairman last year in Little Rock.  Bryant is an Arkansas State University graduate.

This year's meeting focuses on improving rural access to health care, bolstering public retirement systems, traffic safety and the mission of two-year colleges.
