Chuck Welch, president of the Arkansas State University System, has made an amazing ascent in higher education; it's only been three years since he was plucked from the University of Arkansas Community College at Hope to become president of Henderson State University at Arkadelphia.
A native of Jonesboro, Welch is the first member of his family to attend college. He was president of the student body as an undergraduate at the University of Arkansas and earned a master's degree from George Washington University in Washington, D.C., and a doctorate in higher education administration from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. He has previously worked for ASU-Beebe and Pulaski Technical College in North Little Rock.
