Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson has named Keven Anderson, a former state representative from Rogers, to serve on the NorthWest Arkansas Community College Board of Trustees.
Anderson will fill a position left vacant in 2014 with the resignation of trustee Amy Forrest. NWACC’s trustees are elected by voters in the college’s taxing district made up of the Rogers and Bentonville school districts. Anderson will represent District 7.
Anderson, 48, served in the Arkansas House of Representatives from 2003 through 2008 and represented District 96. He is the owner of Anderson Electric & Plumbing Supply with locations in Rogers, Springdale and Harrison.
“I welcome the opportunity to serve and give back to the community which has given so much to our family,” Anderson said.
His wife, Lisa, is a former NWACC trustee, having served as a college board member from 2001 to 2004. She now serves as a member of the Rogers School Board and is the director of institutional research at the college.
“We are pleased to have Keven join our board. His past experiences and community engagement will provide a unique and valued perspective going forward,” said Ric Clifford, chairman of the NWACC Board of Trustees.
The college is governed by a nine-member local Board of Trustees with the trustees elected by zones for terms of up to six years.
