The Arkansas chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals named Conway Corp as its Outstanding Corporation at the National Philanthropy Day luncheon in Little Rock last week.
Richard Arnold, Conway Corp CEO, was on hand to accept the award on behalf of the company’s employees and the city of Conway itself.
“Conway is such a great community. Our three colleges mean so much to our local economy and quality of life,” he said. “Conway Corp was founded in 1929 to support our local educational institutions, and we are proud to continue that legacy.”
The company was nominated for the award by the University of Central Arkansas with supporting recommendations from Hendrix College, Central Baptist College, Conway Public Schools Foundation and Conway Regional Health System.
“Conway Corporation is part of the very fabric that makes up the city of Conway,” Lori Scroggin, Chief Development Officer for Conway Regional Health System said. “Their long-standing support of education and economic development has been essential to the growth in this area of the state.”
