The family of Alphonso W. Grant have come together with the School of Art and the Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences to establish a memorial award in honor of the beloved endowed assistant professor of art education and affiliate faculty in African and African American studies, political science and gender studies.
Grant passed away in December 2020 due to a heart attack at his home in Fayetteville. He was a beloved son, brother, uncle, friend, scholar and educator who forever changed the lives of those he touched with his exceptional intellect, passion, leadership in diversity and love he shared for family, friends, colleagues, students and life.
As a student, Candace Dixon-Horne didn’t initially consider pursuing a career in radio broadcast, but the enterprising University of Arkansas alumna did just that and has been a driving force in the radio field for nearly 25 years.
Now, thanks to Dixon-Horne and her husband, John Horne, more students in the U of A’s School of Journalism and Strategic Media will soon be able to experience this for themselves and follow in her footsteps to create successful careers in radio.
