Veronikha Salazar is the new associate dean of students at Henderson State University. A native of Peru, Salazar said she was attracted to the university and Arkadelphia because of the friendly people she encountered when she was interviewing for the position. Those people reminded her of “the friendship and support found in a small town” and provided her with a level of comfort similar to that of her hometown.
