Jordan Saunders of Dover is the spring 2011 recipient of the Simmons First Bank Scholarship at Arkansas Tech University.

Saunders is a senior with a double major in accounting and economics and finance. His parents are Marcia Cooper and Gene Saunders.

"This scholarship will lift the financial burden of my fifth year of college so that I can graduate with a double major," said Saunders.
