Shown are (from left) Vice Chancellor for Academics Pat Bailey, students Arthur Kittleson, Lisa Bennett and Beverly Arrowood (seated) and Chancellor Ed Coulter. Annual funding for these scholarships comes from an endowment by the South Shore Foundation of Flippin.

The Arkansas State University Mountain Home Scholarship Committee has awarded three scholarships to students in math, science or technology degree programs for the 2004-05 year. Recipients of the full-tuition scholarships are: Beverly Arrowood of Mountain Home, Lisa Bennett of Gassville, and Arthur Kittleson of Mountain Home. These scholarships are funded by a $100,000 endowment to the Arkansas State University Foundation from South Shore Foundation, the charitable foundation of NATCO at Flippin.

Arrowood is enrolled in the information systems technology associate degree program as a sophomore. She graduated from high school in Marshall in 1980, and commented, "I am going after a future I did not know was available or within my reach when I was younger." Mrs. Arrowood wants a challenging career working with computers and a higher education to help beat the minimum wage "trap" and provide a better future for herself and family. She is married to Jerry Arrowood and has two children, one in the ASU bachelor’s degree program and one entering high school.

Bennett is enrolled in the business technology associate degree program as a first semester freshman. She graduated from high school at Santee, Calif., where she was active in student government and fund-raising efforts for the San Diego Zoo. She said her decision to go to college came after an illness because she is no longer able to return to her old line of work. She plans to earn a bachelor’s degree in human resources. She is married to Robert Bennett and they have four children.

Kittleson is enrolled in the information systems technology associate degree program as a first semester freshman. A 2004 graduate of Norfork High School, Kittleson was a class officer, a merit award winner for leadership by USAA, North Arkansas Regional Science Fair award winner, and named to Who’s Who Among American High School Students for four years. Kittleson hopes to work for a large company in the computer field, such as Cisco and to reside in a larger city.

To be eligible for this scholarship, students must reside in Baxter, Marion, or Boone counties and be enrolled in a math, science or technology program or in education to teach math, science or technology. The scholarship is renewable for up to four semesters. For more information about the ASUMH-South Shore Endowed Scholarship, contact the ASUMH Financial Aid Office.
