Former U.S. Senator David Pryor tomorrow will discuss his recently published autobiography, “A Pryor Commitment,” from 3:30 to 4:45 P.M. in the Doyne Health Sciences Auditorium.
Hosted by UCA Deans Maurice Lee, Rollin Potter, and Neil Hattlestad, students and faculty will have the opportunity to hear a sample of David Pryors experiences as an active player on the Nations public stage. Pryor will take as many questions from students and faculty as time allows.Pryor was elected to the Arkansas General Assembly, the U.S. House of Representatives, Governor of Arkansas for two terms, and to the U.S. Senate for three terms (18 years). He is the only person in Arkansas history to have been elected to serve in all four positions. Now retired, Pryor serves as a Director of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB). Arkansas Education Television Network (AETN) is an affiliate of CPB.
