A member of the University of Central Arkansas Board of Trustees who was criticized for failing to acknowledge that a gift to the university was tied to renewing a food vendor’s contract has resigned….Roussel was board president when he and then UCA President Allen Meadors announced last August that food vendor Aramark would provide $700,000 to help renovate the president’s home. Both later acknowledged that they failed to reveal that the offer depended on Aramark’s contract being renewed for seven years.
