Ed Fryar, a graduate and retired professor of the University of Arkansas, currently serves on the Board of Trustees for the University System. He's had several successful ventures in agriculture, including most recently Ozark Mountain Poultry, which was sold to George's Inc. in 2018. He was inducted into the Arkansas Agriculture Hall of Fame in 2019.
