Kyle Fouts Becomes ‘Arkansas Fellow’ in State Program
6/4/2018 JONESBORO – With his bachelor’s degree fresh in hand from Spring Commencement, Kyle Fouts starts work today as recipient of an Arkansas Fellowship. His fellowship is with a University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences tech transfer start-up company, Angel Eye Cameras. This is a two-year fellowship, with an annual salary of $40,000 and assurance of employment after he completes the experience. “I have visited the office in Little Rock, met other employees, and have gotten to know the business better,” Fouts said. “A goal of the Arkansas Fellowship is to have Fellows experience many aspects of the company. My title will be business development, but I will be switching between multiple roles at the company. I will also have responsibilities and opportunities with the Arkansas Fellowship, such as being on one of the committees (events, marketing, recruitment or operations) and attending bi-annual retreats.” Fouts completed a Bachelor of Science degree in marketing management, with a minor in entrepreneurship. “My adviser, Dr. Gail Hudson, does a great job notifying students of new opportunities, whether it be jobs, fellowships, internships or seminars,” Fouts said. Hudson, who is professor of marketing in the Neil Griffin College of Business, urged him to pursue the fellowship opportunity. “Another person that has influenced me at A-State is Alan Copelin, an instructor of electrical engineering,” Fouts continued. “While I was studying in that college we would talk frequently. He helped me decide that I really enjoyed business and entrepreneurship more than mechanical engineering.” A native of Beebe, Fouts attended Lighthouse Christian Academy before enrolling at A-State. “So far I am very pleased and excited about the Fellowship. I have met entrepreneurs, was offered a great job at a great small company before I graduated, and I’m looking forward to the extra things the Fellowship offers like paying to attend a conference,” the new Arkansas Fellow continued. “I encourage other A-State students to apply for this if it sounds interesting to them. I also hope that there are professors in every college sending out info about new opportunities that may interest their students. Also, I would encourage for businesses in Northeast Arkansas to check out the website and think about becoming a mentor company.” The Arkansas Fellowship Program is designed for high-performance, high-potential undergraduates who are seeking entrepreneurial professional experience after graduation. # # #
