Dr. Stone: Bart! How are you?

Bart: I’m great!  I currently serve as the area manager for Conway Title, a company that focuses on the Central Arkansas footprint with offices in downtown Conway and Greenbrier.  I lead a driven staff who work together to provide excellence in customer service, closing services, and title research while maximizing probability and market share growth.  

Dr. Stone: You were part of Hughes Residential College (HRC) during the early years. How did living and learning in Residential College help you develop into both a campus and community leader?

Bart: Being a member of Hughes Residential College not only served as a launching board to begin my campus involvement in SGA, SOS, and SigEp, but it also provided me with a sense of community and academic support throughout my first year. I served in student government (SGA), was a SOS Team Leader my senior year, and was the chapter president and vice president of finance for my fraternity Sigma Phi Epsilon. HRC faculty were engaged, mentors were available, and the overall community provided an easy transition from a small high school. Being a part of HRC provided me the best foundation possible to have a great experience during my undergraduate years. It also prepared me for graduate school (UCA MBA ’07) and for service to the community-at-large.  Currently, I am the President of the Alumni & Volunteer Corporation of Arkansas Zeta and I have also served on the board of directors for both the Boys & Girls Club  of Faulkner County and the Faulkner County Leadership Board.
