UAMS Chancellor Dan Rahn, M.D., presents the Chancellor’s Award to Charles E. Scharlau III, J.D., the retired chairman and CEO of Southwestern Energy Company.

During the ceremony, UAMS Chancellor Dan Rahn, M.D., presented the Chancellor’s Award to Charles E. Scharlau III, J.D., the retired chairman and CEO of Southwestern Energy Company, an oil and gas exploration company with midstream natural gas facilities in Arkansas and Texas.

Scharlau, a native of Mountain Home, has been the director of several business corporations, including Arvest Bank, Fayetteville; First Arkansas Bankstock Corporation, Little Rock; and C.H. Heist Corporation, Florida. He is of counsel with Conner and Winters, PLLC, in Fayetteville.

A graduate of the University of Arkansas, Scharlau served on the Board of Trustees from 1997 to 2007, and as Chairman of the Board for the 2005-06 academic year. He currently serves on the University of Arkansas Foundation Board of Directors as chair of the Audit Committee, and is a member of its Executive Committee.

In 2011, he and his late wife endowed the Charles & Clydene Scharlau Chair for Hematological Malignancies Research at UAMS, which supports continued development of new treatments and therapies for blood cancers such as multiple myeloma. In 2015, he created a second endowed chair at UAMS: the Scharlau Family Endowed Chair in Cancer Research in honor of Kent C. Westbrook, M.D., and Bart Barlogie, M.D., Ph.D. Additionally in 2015, Scharlau established the Endowed Chair in Presidential Leadership to support the University of Arkansas System.

UAMS students help each other adjust their hoods before graduation.

Before the graduation ceremony, students help each other with their ceremonial regalia.
