FAYETTEVILLE — Richard Hudson, the longtime legislative liaison for the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, announced Monday that he'll retire July 31.

Hudson was hired as director of government relations 20 years ago. His role was expanded in 1996 under Chancellor John White to vice chancellor for government and community relations.

"Richard has always been easy to work with and a friendly face behind the scenes at hundreds of events," Gov. Mike Beebe said. "He has always conducted his business with tact and a touch of humor. I know he'll make the most of his well-earned retirement."

Along with his work for the university, Hudson also organized the Political Animals Club of Northwest Arkansas.

Hudson is a native of Warren and attended Ouachita Baptist University and Baylor University. He taught for two years at San Marcos Academy in Texas before joining the faculty at Westark Community College, which is now the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith.
