SMALL ROCK – Governor Asa Hutchinson has appointed Steven M. Anthony a member of the Arkansas Racing Commission.
Mr. Anthony was born in Fayetteville and raised in Fordyce, where he graduated from high school in 1979. He is president of Anthony Timberlands Inc. (ATI).
“Steven Anthony is Arkansas at its core,” Governor Hutchinson said today. “He grew up working in the family’s lumber business, which was founded in 1907. He knows the law and knows how to run a business. The Corsican Commission will be an even stronger agency with the benefit of its legal background, professional network and life experience. “
Mr. Anthony, the son of John E. Anthony of Hot Springs and Mary Lynn Dudley of Little Rock, graduated with honors from Washington & Lee University in Lexington, Virginia in 1983 in business administration. He holds a doctorate in law from the University of Arkansas School of Law in Fayetteville.
Mr. Anthony’s lumber company operates five Arkansas sawmills, several secondary processing plants, and 180,000 acres of woodland in south-central Arkansa.
He was president of the Arkansas Forestry Commission and president of the Arkansas Forestry Association and the Southern Forest Products Association. He serves on the board of directors of the Bank of Bearden and the executive committee of the Arkansas Forestry Association.
He and his wife, Gay, live in Fordyce. They have two children, Addison, who works at Anthony Hardwood Composites in Sheridan, and Wilson, who works at Anthony Timberlands. They also have four grandchildren.
Mr. Anthony’s term of office will expire on January 14, 2027. He replaces Butch Rice, whose five-year term expires today.
