Arkansas Tech University has postponed its scholarship dinner in response to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The event, entitled “Foundations and Futures: An Arkansas Tech University Celebration of ATU Scholarship and Distinction,” will take place on April 16, 2021.
This marks the second time that COVID-19 has led to the postponement of the event. It was originally planned for April 17, 2020, and rescheduled for Oct. 16, 2020.
“Social distancing guidelines would limit our ability to adequately hold the caliber of event our inductees and students deserve this October,” said Dr. Robin E. Bowen, ATU president. “While we are disappointed, the health and safety of our Tech family is our top priority. We look forward to honoring our Hall of Distinction inductees and celebrating scholarship at Arkansas Tech on April 16, 2021.”
The dinner and accompanying induction of John Ed Chambers III of Danville, Benny Harris of Russellville and Dr. Rose Clarke Nanyonga of Kampala, Uganda, into the ATU Hall of Distinction will take place at John E. Tucker Coliseum in Russellville.
