Sign Condolence Book
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Dr. Chisholm was my microeconomics teacher at UALR back in 2000 and was a major influence in my life at the time. He was a thoughtful teacher that passionately served the University. As I have now worked at UALR for more than 12 years, I loved seeing him at basketball games, sitting in section 110 and cheering on the Trojans. We will truly miss him here on campus and at games. I feel very fortunate to have known such a wonderful man.
With my respect,
