Published on April 20, 2018

Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson will address Ozarka College graduates during the 2018 Commencement Ceremony. Governor Hutchinson was sworn in as the 46th Governor of Arkansas in January 2015, and immediately set in motion his plan to bring more jobs and economic growth to his native state.

Governor Hutchinson kept a major campaign promise by working to pass the biggest income tax rate cut in state history. His initiative to require computer-coding classes in every public high school makes Arkansas a national leader and signals to businesses everywhere that our students will be prepared for the 21st century economy.

"There is a great deal of excitement at Ozarka and in our community about the Governor serving as our 2018 Commencement Speaker, " said Ozarka College President, Dr. Richard Dawe. "We feel honored that he made time in his busy schedule for Ozarka College students! "

Governor Hutchinson is a graduate of the University of Arkansas law school, has been married to his wife Susan for 44  years, and they have four children and six  grandchildren.

Commencement will take place on Thursday, May 10 at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the John E. Miller Education Complex in Melbourne, Arkansas. Approximately 400 students are expected to receive credentials from 32 Ozarka College degree programs.   The administration, faculty, and staff are proud of the hard work demonstrated by these graduates and invite family, friends, and interested community members to attend the 2018 commencement ceremony.
