Billy F. Powell Scholarship

Billy F. Powell Scholarship

Friends and family endowed a scholarship in memory of Billy Powell, a former assistant professor at Arkansas State University – Beebe, in 2011 to help future students achieve their potential for many years to come. Mr. Powell was born in Cotton Plant, Arkansas in February 1935. Mr. Powell lead a very distinguished career of owning a grocery store in Cotton Plant, serving in the Army, earning his education and served as Methodist minister for many years. This career path eventually led him to his second calling to teach. He began his career at ASU-Beebe in 1990 as an adjunct instructor and eventually become a full-time instructor in 1995 teaching classes such as introduction to psychology, sensation and perception, anthropology and comparative religion. In 2000 - 2001, Mr. Powell received the Positive Teacher Award, which is a student-elected recognition for outstanding teaching. He also received the ASU - Beebe Outstanding Faculty award at the Arkansas Association of Two-Year Colleges Conference in 2002. The Billy F. Powell Scholarship is available to a student graduating from high school in White County, Lonoke County or Pulaski County planning to major in psychology or education that demonstrates financial need.
