ASU buys in Chenal


The Arkansas State University Board of Trustees has purchased a home at 4 Lacelle Court in Chenal for new ASU system president Dr. Charles "Chuck" Welch. The board paid $750,000 to Steven L. and Theresa Middleton.

The board announced in January it would buy a house in Little Rock for the system president. An opinion piece in the Herald, the ASU student newspaper, in February criticized the move, quoting students who said Welch would not be actively engaged in the Jonesboro campus or community if he lived in Little Rock.
