Flora Smith of Mena, the 18-year old daughter of Van Smith and Kathy Smith, has earned her way onto the prestigious Chancellor’s List at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. Smith was a homeschooled student and earned an associate’s degree at Rich Mountain Community College before she was 17. Smith is majoring in Mechanical Engineering at the UA College of Engineering. She entered UA as a junior.
To be included on the Chancellor’s List, a student must be a full-time student and maintain a 4.0 grade point average. Other county students making the Chancellor’s List were Brian Schuller and Maddison Schuller.
Ethan Campbell was on the Dean’s List. This year, for the first time, the requirements to be included on the Dean’s list are the same for all the undergraduate colleges and the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design. These lists include all full time students who earned grade point averages from 3.75 to 4.0.
