Dr. Henderson

Dr. Henderson

Today I began with a visit to Dr. Henderson who gave me my permanent crown. For those of you who have been following the blog, you know there have been a number of dental visits this year and this was the last one for a while (we hope). One of the unfortunate things was that as he was putting the temporary crown on he saw that the tooth next to it had a spot of decay, so I had to get a new filling upon receiving my crown. Hopefully that’s the last visit to Dr. Henderson for a while.For the bloggies who have been following this, I finally got him to consent to letting me take his picture so there he is. Dr. Henderson has been doing all this great dental work and enables me to have such a fun smile.

That afternoon for lunch, one of our alums and one of the earliest students I taught stopped by, Stacey Sturner. It was great to be able to catch up with her. Many of you may know she was the campaign manager for Courtney Henry who ran successfully for a seat on the Arkansas Court of Appeals. She shared with me what that experience was like and some of the funny stories and people they encountered during Courtney’s campaign. We had lunch at Taste of Thai off the square in downtown Fayetteville and I have to say I was pretty predictable because I went with the typical Pad See Eu meal and Stacey had a curry.

After lunch she dropped me off, and later that afternoon Angela Hyde, one of our recent graduates, came in to share with me her ideas for fundraising for the Innocence Project. That was an interesting meeting and it was also good to learn more about the work of the Innocence Project and where the co-directors think it will be going in the future.

Patsy Brewer

That evening after work, there was a reception honoring Patsy Brewer in the Mockingbird Room at the Fayetteville Town Center. Patsy Brewer has been for many, many years the Director of the Fayetteville Habitat for Humanity Program. It was fun to be able to go to that reception and say thanks to Patsy. Some of you who follow the blog may know that, in fact, the law school is engaged in a Wills Project with Habitat for Humanity in which students working under the supervision of Prof. Carl Circo draft wills for the Habitat homeowners. We’re very proud of that program.
