Arkansas Tech College on Thursday introduced that Fayetteville lawyer Jim Smith has been elected chair of the college’s board of trustees for 2023.
Smith is a previous president of the ATU Alumni Affiliation who was first appointed to the board by former Gov. Asa Hutchinson in January 2019.

Smith earned a Juris Physician from the College of Arkansas College of Legislation and a Grasp of Legislation diploma in taxation from the New York College College of Legislation. He started his profession working in company and tax legislation at Friday Eldredge & Clark LLP of Little Rock for nearly 20 years earlier than co-founding Smith Hurst PLC in northwest Arkansas in 2011.
Smith’s group service has included work on behalf of the Arkansas Financial Improvement Fee, the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce, the Fayetteville Neighborhood Basis, the Arkansas Rice Depot, Huge Brothers and Huge Sisters of Northwest Arkansas, the Northwest Arkansas Museum Basis and the
Northwest Arkansas Symphony.
Different trustees for 2023 are:
- Len Cotton of Dardanelle, vice chairman
