G. C. Hardin Society
February 9, 2017

The G. C. Hardin Society was established to recognize alumni and friends who affirm their commitment to UAFS by using their estate plans to ensure future gifts. Prior to 2017, donors who had created an endowment were also included in the G.C. Hardin Society.
G. C. Hardin, an attorney and local civic leader, is credited with the idea that created Fort Smith Junior College in 1928.
