Dr. Glen F. Fenter

Glen Fenter has gained a high profile leading Mid-South Community College to become the newest and fastest growing two-year college in Arkansas.

Fenter made the collegiate leap from high school work in 1992. Before that, he was principal of West Memphis High School, assistant principal of Fort Smith Northside High School and a teacher and coach at Alma High School.

Fenter is president of the West Memphis Area Chamber of Commerce, Crittenden County executive director of the Chickasaw Council of the Boy Scouts of America and president-elect of the West Memphis Rotary Club.

"I've had a lot of neat things happen to me, and I don't really feel like I'm responsible of any of it," the 36-year-old Charleston native says. "I've had a lot of divine intervention."

His education includes a 1990 doctorate and 1986 master's in education administration from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville and a 1982 bachelor's degree in education from Hendrix College. Fenter and his wife, Jo Ellen, have four children.
