Kennedy begins second term as Arkansas Tech trustee

Tom Kennedy of Little Rock, Arkansas, has been re-appointed to a second five-year term on the Arkansas Tech University Board of Trustees, which he will begin Jan. 15.

Kennedy received the appointment from Gov. Asa Hutchinson. He'll fill the position being vacated by Chairman Eric Burnett, who is finishing his term. 

Arkansas Tech is a campus Kennedy knows well. He earned his bachelor of science at the university in 1982. After that, Kennedy went on to earn his law degree at University of Arkansas at Little Rock School of Law and began work as a prosecutor in 1985.

From there, Kennedy was elected to the Arkansas State Senate, representing District 12 for four years. Kennedy is also vice president of public affairs at Entergy Arkansas Inc. and serves on the board of directors for the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame and Children’s Advocacy Centers of Arkansas.

The five-member Arkansas Tech University Board of Trustees elects 2016 officers at the board’s first meeting of the year, which is scheduled for Jan. 21.
