Over 550 business and civic leaders from the downtown Little Rock area attended the Downtown Little Rock Partnership Annual Meeting, where Webster University Little Rock area campuses were the presenting sponsor.

Kelly Lyon, Webster Little Rock area director, took the podium to present the Top of The Rock Award to the Arkansas Building Authority. The “Webster Story” video was featured during the ceremony, and each of the 550 guests received a Spring 2 Open House flyer.

Representatives from Webster’s two Little Rock campuses included a combination of faculty and staff for the March 11 event held at the Statehouse Convention Center.

Regional partners and guests included representatives from the Arkansas AmeriCorps Board, the Central Arkansas Human Resources Association, and the Arkansas STEM Coalition.  Special guest Gene O’Nale, chief of staff, National Guard Professional Education Center, was also in attendance.

Lyon said sponsoring this luncheon is part of a strategy to raise Webster’s visibility in the downtown area and capitalize on redevelopment projects currently underway near the Webster Little Rock metro campus.
