Black and Reeder Scholarship Recipient to Study Biomedical Engineering


University of Arkansas alumni Sherman Black and Lynnette Reeder Black have announced this year’s recipient of the Black and Reeder Scholarship, which is awarded to a Greenwood High School student seeking a degree in engineering or business at the U of A.

Jackson Hudnall will graduate from Greenwood High School on May 24 and will pursue biomedical engineering in the College of Engineering.

Hudnall plans to use his biomedical degree as a springboard to medical school, with aspirations to become a radiologist. With many members of his family working in medical fields, he considers going into medicine to be a family legacy.

He said he chose biomedical engineering for his undergraduate studies because it lends itself to many career paths. He was convinced after attending Razorback 101 on the U of A campus in July 2023.

As a student at Greenwood High School, Hudnall was involved in National Beta Club, Partners Club, National Honors Society and HOSA-Future Health Professionals. He also helped in the office as an aide.

The Blacks created the scholarship as a way to give back to the community and honor their parents, Galen and Wilma Black and Van and Carolyn Reeder, longtime residents of Greenwood. Recipients’ $4,000 annual awards are renewable if they meet scholarship requirements.

Black and Reeder Scholarship recipient Noah Doss graduated in December 2023 with a bachelor’s degree from the Sam M. Walton College of Business.

Black and Reeder Scholarship recipients whose awards will continue next fall are Trey Smith, a senior in biomedical engineering; Gavin Holland, a junior in electrical engineering; and Maggie Leonard, a sophomore in business.
