Benita Norwood has joined the Clinton School of Public Service at the University of Arkansas as the school’s new Business Officer.
Norwood brings nearly 25 years of experience in accounting and finance to the Clinton School. Most recently, she spent six years as a Fiscal Support Analyst at UA Little Rock, assisting the university’s Facilities Management Department with requisitions, procurement, and invoice processing, among other responsibilities. She managed multiple foundation funds and all departmental scholarships.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Benita to the Clinton School as our new Business Officer,” said Dean Victoria M. DeFrancesco Soto. “Her background in accounting, finance, and fiscal support in higher education will be critical as the Clinton School continues to grow.”
She previously spent 15 years working with KUAR, UA Little Rock’s public radio station, providing fiscal support for the station and its general manager. She assisted the station’s Director of Development with on-air fundraisers, volunteer recruitment, and development reports.
A native of Little Rock, she is a graduate of Joe T. Robinson High School and Big Bend Community College.
The Clinton School Speaker Series not only enhances the education of Clinton School students, but also provides a venue for the public to engage in intellectual discussions on the issues of the day.
