Shannon Haney has been hired as the Director of Development at the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville (UACCB). Haney has experience working with non-profit organizations and fund-raising.  “It’s the missions of these organizations that motivates me,” said Haney, “that’s why I was so excited to come to UACCB, because they have such an important role in this community and that’s the mission I want to support.”


Haney, a native of the north-central Arkansas area, lived in northwest Arkansas and Little Rock before moving back. Her work on revitalization and fundraising projects are a both source of joy and key experiences for her new role. “It is just so fulfilling to see something change for the better,” Haney said, “I think it’s an exciting time to be at UACCB because the type of education we provide is more important than ever to our community and economy.”


Dr. Brian Shonk, Chancellor of UACCB, expressed his excitement for Haney’s work, “We are excited to welcome Shannon to UACCB. Her mission-driven focus will strengthen our community partnerships and ensure student success through access to scholarships.”


Haney wants to build on UACCB’s strong network of support and ensure everyone is involved. Haney’s goal is to reach out to the people who have always supported UACCB: alumni, community members, everyone who has been connected to UACCB. “I want to reach out to them and say we still need you; we appreciate you, and we want you to be part of this journey with us,” said Haney.
