From the UA - Pulaski Tech Chancellor
Congratulations as a 2021-2022 University of Arkansas – Pulaski Technical College Student Milestone winner! You join a cadre of UA-PTC students who excel with creative grace, skill, and academic accomplishment. Whether it be an academic specialty, professional technical studies, or the fine arts – you have displayed a gift that you should be proud of every day.
You are a successful UA-PTC student and the Milestone recognition reflects your achievement. I am confident of two important facts when it comes to your ability and heart to achieve: First, your dedication in meeting your educational goals and cultivating your skills is a success story! Secondly, is that your personal story and positive spirit will continue to be essential to your future life accomplishments.
Author and poet, Dr. Maya Angelou noted, “there is no greater sadness than leaving an untold story inside you.” A very important part of your own story is your Milestone honor. Your recognition, now shared with family, friends and the UA-PTC community, is a true reflection of your academic commitment. Your UA-PTC story is not a “story untold” – it is a story that you have embodied, is now collective, and honored!
On behalf of the UA-PTC faculty and staff, congratulations! We are very proud of you.

Dear UA-PTC Milestone Achievers:
Your accomplishments must be celebrated and today is your day to enjoy the rewards of your grit, resiliency, and perseverance! The UA-PTC Faculty have selected you as a Milestone Awardee and I am so very proud of you.
Please carry with you the feeling you have today throughout your life. Achieving lofty goals and carrying with you an attitude of excellence will serve you well. Note that I mentioned excellence and not perfection though. The ups and downs, highs and lows, good days and bad while earning your award are the hallmarks of excellence and the ability to bounce, recover, and achieve your dreams. Use this time to reflect on how you plan to accomplish your next great milestone.
The UA-PTC community will continue to support you and celebrate your next accomplishments. Please keep in touch with your mentors and faculty as you move into your career or next educational adventure.
Stay strong and be well,
Summer DeProw, PhD
