Skip Rutherford and his wife, Billie, welcomed the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service class of 2021 to Little Rock at an Aug. 14 reception at Trapnall Hall.
The 42 new students will work to obtain a Master of Public Service degree. The school was first in the nation to offer that degree. Rutherford has been dean of the school since 2006.
Since opening in 2004, the school has attracted students from more than 40 countries and 200 universities. Individual members of the Class of 2021 come from 11 states and five countries.
The class includes four Peace Corps alumni who have served in Gambia, Togo, Ecuador and Indonesia; a U.S. Navy veteran and a firefighter.
Throughout their time at the Clinton School, students will work on three public service projects within their particular public service interests.Gallery: Clinton School of Public Service reception
