  • Board of Trustees hears positive updates on events at SAU and SAU Tech during virtual meeting

    Dr. Trey Berry, president of Southern Arkansas University, enthusiastically shared that the University continues to see growth in the midst of the pandemic and a low number of positive COVID-19 cases. Berry made the remarks in his report to the SAU Board of Trustees on Wednesday, April 14, in a virtual session.

    The Board welcomed two new members, Laura Winning of Little Rock and Nathan Evers of El Dorado, and heard an update from Dr. Jason Morrison, chancellor of SAU Tech. Following, trustees adjourned into a private session for board training.

    Berry thanked all faculty and staff for their inspiring work in keeping SAU and SAU Tech safe during the pandemic. As of Wednesday morning, there were zero positive COVID-19 cases on or off-campus and zero quarantine cases. “It can’t get any better than that,” said Berry. “This is truly a testament to all of us working together.”
