Brockette Minnick '08

After high school graduation, I decided to continue my education at the University of Arkansas – Fort Smith. That decision has profoundly affected my life—educationally, professionally, and personally. I received a high-quality education at UA Fort Smith through the College of Business. My professors were knowledgeable and many had been out in the business world themselves. Thanks to them, I was more than prepared for life after college.
On our way to get our diplomas!
I graduated college in May of 2008 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing, along with my husband Mitch, who I met at UA Fort Smith during our freshman year. We were married the summer of our junior year in my hometown of Paris, Arkansas.
Trying to be nice…!!! I promise I didn’t smear it on his face too much!
Even though my time as a student was over, I wasn’t ready to be finished with my time at UA Fort Smith, so I accepted the Scholarship Coordinator position the summer after graduation! Now I spend my days helping students find funding so they can receive a high-quality education—just like I did at UA Fort Smith!

A year after graduation on May 26, 2009, Mitch and I welcomed our greatest accomplishment into the world, Luci Ava Minnick!

Now instead of studying text books together, we spend our evenings chasing around a toddler, taking pictures of her every move, and just enjoying life together as a family.
Our family!
I love UA Fort Smith and it truly has been a blessing in every aspect of my life!
