President of University of Arkansas System

Donald R. Bobbitt, PhD

Dr. Donald R. Bobbitt began his term as president on November 1, 2011. Previously, he served as provost and vice president for academic affairs at the University of Texas at Arlington, from 2008-2011.

After earning a doctorate in chemistry from Iowa State University in 1985, Bobbitt became an assistant professor in the department of chemistry and biochemistry at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville. Among his many honors are the University of Arkansas Alumni Association Award in Teaching and the Fulbright College Master Teacher Award.

From 1988-1993, he was a recipient of the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation Teacher-Scholar Fellowship. His research has been supported by organizations including the R.W. Johnson Pharmaceutical Research Institute, the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. He is also the author or co-author of 56 refereed publications. In 2003, he was named Dean of the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Arkansas.

“There is one thing I know for sure about the UA Grantham family, which you are all now a part of: UA Grantham is resilient, perseverant, and can adapt to whatever changes the world may throw at us.”

Keynote Speaker

Michael K. Moore, PhD, has devoted most of his life to improving the lives of others. His experience in building, launching and managing innovative online degree programs has provided opportunities for students to realize their academic dreams. As a first-generation college student, he appreciates the transformative power of a college education. In 2015, Moore led the launch of the University of Arkansas System’s only 100% online institution, eVersity, which focused on innovative teaching strategies and provided learner-centered support, while eliminating barriers to success from application to graduation. He most recently led the UA System’s effort to acquire UA Grantham and is successfully transitioning eVersity students, award-winning business processes and coursework into a much larger, farther-reaching online effort.

Along with his efforts to better serve online students through UA Grantham, Dr. Moore is the vice president for academic affairs for the UA System. He earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from Washburn University and a master’s and doctorate in political science from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

“It gives me boundless joy to know that our graduates chose the challenge of earning a degree, relentlessly pursued it, and ultimately accomplished that goal. Your families, your communities and your lives as a whole will be better off because of it.”

Outstanding Faculty Award

Judy Mason

The recipient of the 2022 Faculty of the Year Award is Judy Mason—a vital member of the faculty team in the College of Science, Engineering, and Technology.

For nearly eight years, Judy has been teaching, developing, and revising courses to provide the best possible educational experience for her students, and has remained dedicated to working with students who are struggling. Her fields of expertise are broad, and she uses her extensive knowledge to help each and every student in courses ranging from entry level to the most advanced and challenging.

“In essence, I believe it’s our job to meet students where they are and help facilitate a meaningful relationship with learning, not only in the classes they take with us but as part of a lifelong journey.”

Outstanding Graduate

Janet White, MSN, MHA

Two-time UA Grantham graduate, Janet White, understands the value of learning and hard work. White has held multiple leadership positions in healthcare, and to better equip herself for the business aspects of leadership, she earned her Master of Healthcare Administration after completing her Master of Science in Nursing Management and Organizational Leadership. She graduated from both programs with a 4.0 GPA.

Her dedication to continuing education has paved the way for significant career growth. She began as a Nurse Manager, and is now the Interim Director of Surgical Services at an underserved rural community hospital.

“Achieving can be challenging, but the challenge is achievable at University of Arkansas Grantham.”

Commander Everett Alvarez, Jr. Resilience Award

Virginia Lenser

The recipient of the 2022 Commander Everett Alvarez, Jr. Resilience Award is Virginia Lenser, an active duty service member from Arkansas. Lenser graduates Magna Cum Laude with her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from University of Arkansas Grantham.

During her time working toward her degree, Lenser also served as an active duty soldier, raised three kids, held three new positions in order to advance her career, and completed numerous military training courses. Recently, Lenser was transferred to a state-level position where she manages the actions of more than 4,000 soldiers. Lenser is proud to be a positive role model for her kids by proving to them that hard work and perseverance really do pay off.

“I couldn’t let my kids see their mom give up so close to the finish line. Now, I can show them how hard work and perseverance pay off, and I can share this success with them.”

Honorary Degree

Thomas M. Macon Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, The Level Playing Field Corporation

Thomas M. Macon, former Grantham University Chairman of the Board, and CEO of The Level Playing Field Corporation, the parent company of Grantham University, found shared values and a common vision with the University of Arkansas System as the two organizations forged a path to continue Grantham’s legacy within the premier public higher education system in Arkansas.

Following the successful launch of University of Arkansas Grantham, Dr. Donald R. Bobbitt, President of the University of Arkansas System, was inspired to honor Macon’s commitment to advancing higher education by presenting him with an Honorary Bachelor of Business Administration degree from UA Grantham. The Board of Trustees of the University of Arkansas System confirmed this conferral and offered him its best wishes and deepest gratitude.

“The Level Playing Field’s mission — to make highquality college education accessible and affordable for everyone — was embodied in our name.

Prior to Grantham joining the UA System, Level Playing Field was privileged to work with the University’s Board of Governors for two decades in support of that mission. Together, we made it possible for Grantham academicians, leadership team, and administrative staff to achieve our collective goal of inclusion.

Over the course of those two decades, thousands of Grantham students celebrated their success as college graduates. Today, as the University is graduating its first class under the banner of University of Arkansas Grantham, I am humbled to stand among you. Thank you to the University of Arkansas System Board of Trustees for this honor, and congratulations graduates!”
