Dr. Tyler to be Honored at Retirement Reception


Dr. Tom Tyler, dean of the College of Business and professor of economics, will be recognized during a retirement reception held in his honor today in the Chambers Cafeteria East Dining Room.

The reception is scheduled to take place from 3-5 p.m., and Tyler’s friends, colleagues and current and former students are invited to attend.

Tyler will retire on June 30 after serving more than four decades at Arkansas Tech.

“It has been a very rewarding experience to observe the progress of this institution over four decades and to see the success of our many graduates,” wrote Tyler in his letter of retirement to the Arkansas Tech Board of Trustees. “In looking back, I made a very wise decision in 1967 to join the faculty at Arkansas Tech.”
