The Razorback Foundation, Inc., has announced the members of the 2019 Board of Directors.
“We are pleased to announce that last fall the voting members of the Razorback Foundation elected Lisa Walker of Little Rock and Mindy West of El Dorado to the Board of Directors,” says Scott Varady, executive director of the Razorback Foundation. “Year-after-year we are fortunate to have 12 outstanding business, community and philanthropic leaders from across the great State of Arkansas who invest their time to help advance our mission of raising private gift support to assist Razorback Athletics and to make a positive impact on the lives of more than 465 Razorback student-athletes.”
The Board of Directors provides oversight and support to advance the mission of the Razorback Foundation, and Board members serve as ambassadors in their respective communities to educate non-Foundation members about the investment and impact the Foundation has on Razorback student-athletes and Razorback Athletics and to encourage them to join the non-profit organization. Board members are elected for a term of six years.
“It’s a privilege to work with dedicated members of the Board of Directors, and we welcome Lisa Walker and Mindy West,” said Rick Massey, chairman and president of the Razorback Foundation Board of Directors. “We’d like to thank two incredible lifelong Razorbacks, Charles Balentine and Dr. James Counce, for completing their dedicated and loyal service on the Board, and we look forward to their continued support of the Foundation’s endeavors in the future.”
“The Razorbacks are part of the fabric of all 75 counties throughout the great State of Arkansas, and we are excited to have two new Board members from central and south Arkansas,” Varady said. “With the leadership of our Board of Directors and the passion and generous support of our Razorback Foundation members, all Arkansans can be proud that the Razorback Athletic program is financially self-sustaining and operates without receiving any taxpayer dollars or mandatory student fees,” Varady continued.
