FAYETTEVILLE — A $3 million gift from a University of Arkansas graduate will create an endowed position at the university's College of Engineering.

Kevin and Marie Brown of Houston donated the money to establish an endowed department head chair in the University of Arkansas' Ralph E. Martin department of chemical engineering.
