Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced he reappointed Kay Hinkle to the University of Central Arkansas Board of Trustees.

Hinkle was first appointed to the board in 2004 by former Gov. Mike Huckabee and was reappointed in 2011 by former Gov. Mike Beebe.

“I am both pleased and honored to be reappointed by Gov. Hutchinson to UCA's Board of Trustees for a third term,” Hinkle said. “I appreciate the opportunity to serve my state and alma mater, and look forward to working with President Davis and the board to continue to move UCA forward.”

Hinkle’s current term will end Jan. 15, 2025.

“We’re thrilled that Gov. Hutchinson has reappointed Kay Hinkle to the Board of Trustees,” UCA President Houston Davis said. “Her service to the board has benefited students, faculty, staff and the entire University of Central Arkansas community. We look forward to working with her and benefitting from continued dedication.”

Hinkle, a Malvern native who lives in Mountain View, graduated from UCA in 1970. She and her husband Jim, a fellow UCA alumnus, have two daughters and four grandchildren.

Both of the couple’s daughters graduated from UCA.
