The Delta Epsilon Iota Academic Honor Society has selected Ryan Peavy for membership in the local chapter at Arkansas State University.

Peavy is the son of Kim and Greg Peavy and a graduate of Tuckerman High School. He majors in Political Science and expects to graduate in December. "After I graduate from ASU-Jonesboro with my bachelor's degree in Political Science, I plan to attend Bowen's Law School at UALR in Little Rock," said Peavy. "Then, hopefully work for the state as a lawyer." Delta Epsilon Iota was established in order to recognize and encourage academic excellence in all fields of study.
