Ouachita Baptist University trustees addressed a number of personnel-related actions during their summer board meeting June 8 on Ouachita’s Arkadelphia campus, including naming a professor to an endowed chair and approving several faculty and staff positions.
Trustees named Dr. Detri Brech, professor of dietetics in the Patterson School of Natural Sciences, to the Charles S. and Elma Grey Goodwin Holt Chair of Dietetics and Pre-Medical Studies. The endowed chair was established in 1987 through a generous bequest from the estate of Dr. Charles S. Holt, a 1930 Ouachita graduate. Dr. Brech, who has taught at Ouachita since 2000, is a 1984 Ouachita graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in dietetics. She also holds degrees from Louisiana Tech University and Oklahoma State University. Dr. Joe Jeffers, professor emeritus of chemistry, previously held the endowed chair.
Trustees also approved three new faculty members as well as a new director of Ouachita at New Life Church:
