Dr. Thomas Flowers Retires

Dr. Thomas Flowers recently retired from the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton after more than 16 years of distinguished service, during which he served as vice president of student services, dean of students, and, most recently, vice chancellor of instruction.
Flowers came to UACCM in 1992 after 13 years with Nemo Vista Schools, where he served as a teacher and counselor. He also served as school superintendant for three years. Upon leaving Nemo Vista, he worked with the Arch Ford Education Service Cooperative in Plumerville before coming to UACCM. Flowers is also currently a member of the Conway County Quorum Court and the Conway County School Counts! Initiative Steering Committee and has been involved with numerous other civic groups in Conway County in the past. 
“The College provides a wonderful opportunity to the residents of Conway County and our service area to continue their education. It is important that we, as a community, emphasize the value of education to our youth and the importance of lifelong learning for all of us,” Flowers said. When asked about his time at UACCM, he remarked “I am grateful for the opportunity to have been part of the staff at UACCM for the past 16 years. It has been exciting to observe the growth of UACCM and the expansion of our academic program options, including additional technical and occupational programs and transfer options.” 
A come-and-go reception will be held in honor of Flowers’ many contributions to UACCM and the community on June 19, 2008 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the UACCM Plaza. All friends are invited to stop by to enjoy hors d’ oeuvres and wish him well.
