John and Robin Hayes Donate to ASU-Beebe Gym Restoration

On March 3, 2023, Arkansas State University-Beebe received a donation from the Hayes Family for $10,000 for the ASU-Beebe gym restoration project. Pictured are John and Robin Hayes (seated); back row: Charles Burns, physical education instructor; student Benjamin Byrd; Teddy Davis, dean of the arts and humanities division; and Andrea Cole, development officer/major gifts. Those not pictured are the Hayes’ children, David and Annie Hayes, Jenny and Trent Brown and Scott Hayes. The restoration of the gymnasium will include completely replacing the outdated gym floor with a new maple wood sports surface, along with new paint, pads, scoreboard and benches. The entire restoration project will cost an estimated $250,000. A fundraising campaign has been launched to complete the project. To make a donation, visit or contact Cole at or call 501-882-8903.
