PINE BLUFF—Jerry Damerow and Kim Evans, both of Little Rock, and Ben Steinberg of Helena-West Helena have joined the Southern Good Faith Fund Board of Directors, Southern Good Faith Fund President Angela Duran announced today.
Herman Davenport of Little Rock, a Southern Good Faith board member since 2002, also has been elected to serve as board Chairman, Duran said.
Ben Steinberg came to Little Rock four years ago as a volunteer in Wesley Clark’s presidential campaign and never left the state.
In July 2004, he made a home in Arkansas as the president of Southern Financial Partners in Helena. “Our goal is to revitalize distressed rural communities,” the 40-year-old California native said.
LITTLE ROCK— Southern Good Faith Fund’s Public Policy program today released a report that proposes creating an Arkansas Promise Trust Fund to help more Arkansans go to college, financed by an increase in the state’s historically low severance tax on natural gas.
