"I am honored and pleased that Governor Beebe has given me the privilege to continue service on this prestigious commission," Holland said. "It is truly a most rewarding experience to be associated with the talented and dedicated management and staff of the AETN family."
A person may serve as commissioner for an unlimited number of terms, each of which is eight years. The current Arkansas governor appoints or reappoints commissioners as representatives’ terms expire or a space is vacated.
Holland, a financial advisor for Edward Jones Investments of Hot Springs, was first appointed to the commission in May 2012 by Gov. Mike Beebe. Holland was reappointed by the governor this year; his current term will expire March 23, 2022.
"Skip Holland has been a tremendous addition to the commission throughout his past two years of service," AETN Executive Director Allen Weatherly said. "I am confident that his leadership will continue to benefit the network and help further its mission to educate, enrich and inspire."
George "Skip" Holland has been chosen to serve as the District 4 representative for the Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN) Commission for a second consecutive term.
Holland currently resides and works in his hometown of Hot Springs. Prior to joining Edward Jones in 1999, he served as a liaison to the White House under the Clinton administration for five years and worked for Southwestern Bell/AT&T for more than 30 years. A graduate of Hot Springs High School, Holland attended the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville and also received specialized training from the Center for Public Policy Education at the Brookings Institute.
