Governor Appoints Sharp County Man to ASU Board

LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT) - Governor Mike Beebe today named Ron Rhodes of Cherokee Village to the Arkansas State University Board of Trustees.

"Ron Rhodes has deep ties to Arkansas State University," Beebe said.  "While this is a political appointment, Ron is by his nature not a political person.  He simply has spent his life in dedicated support of ASU and will serve the university and the state well on the Board of Trustees."

Rhodes, 60, graduated from ASU in 1970, and is a lifetime member of the ASU Association, as well as belonging to the ASU Indian Club and the ASU Letterman's Club.  He has spent more than 35 years in the real estate business, and is president of King-Rhodes & Associates, Inc. in Cherokee Village.  A member and past president of the Cherokee Village Lions Club, Rhodes also serves on the Sharp County Community Foundation and volunteers for the Sharp County campus of the Arkansas Sheriffs' Youth Ranch.

Rhodes succeeds Lt. Colonel Dallas Wood (ret.) of Paragould, whose term expired.

Beebe himself is an ASU graduate, and also served previously on the school's board of trustees, prior to his election as governor.
