Lyon College Elects 21-Year-Old Jonesboro Man to Board of Trustees

APRIL 21, 2006 - Posted at 7:47 a.m. CST

 

BATESVILLE, AR - Lyon College's newest trustee knows his way around campus.

Adam Long, 21, became the board's youngest trustee yesterday.  The senior from Jonesboro was elected by his 100 classmates to serve a two-year term on the board.

Earlier this year, 40-member Lyon College Board of Trustees decided to add a newly graduated student as a board trustee with full voting rights.

Long, an English major who plans on attending graduate school, will become a board member after he receives his diploma in May.  His first official meeting as a trustee will happen in October.

Frank Lyon, Junior, chairman of the board, said, "He won't let us forget what we're here for."
