Public Invited To UACCM Chancellor Retirement Reception


The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton (UACCM) invites the public to attend a retirement reception honoring Chancellor Larry Davis on Thursday, January 17, 2019 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. The event will be held at the Workforce Training Center, Tyson Hall A, at 1537 University Blvd. on the UACCM campus.

Chancellor Davis will retire effective January 31, 2019, after serving in that role since 2010. Prior to his appointment as chancellor at UACCM, Davis had a 31 year career at OSU-Okmulgee followed by serving six years at ASU-Newport as Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.

During his tenure at UACCM, he guided the college through its North Central Association accreditation, and oversaw the creation of several new programs that met the demand of industry including commercial driver training and industrial mechanics and maintenance. One of his proudest achievements was the opening of the Workforce Training Center in April 2018 that houses the Department of Workforce Development and Community Education, and offers technical training in the fields of automotive service; air conditioning, heating, and refrigeration; industrial mechanics and maintenance and welding.

Davis also forged strong ties with the Conway County school superintendents and developed strong relationships with the region’s business and industry leaders. He was named the 2012 Earle Love Business Leader of the Year by the Morrilton Area Chamber of Commerce.

The public is invited to attend the come-and-go reception and share both memories and well-wishes.
