Lyon was also recently named to chair the Workforce Education Committee for the Searcy Regional Chamber of Commerce, a position she says provides a real opportunity to meet many area employers and find out what specific needs exist for upskill training. Lyon holds a doctorate degree in education and has served in numerous positions throughout her career working in community and economic development and higher education. She comes to ASU-Beebe from the Arkansas Department of Education-Division of Career and Technical Education, where she was an associate director for occupational programs. In 2018 and 2019, she served as the strategic planning and development manager at the Arkansas Department of Career Education and Office of Skills Development. “I am very interested to talk with business and industry representatives to hear their ideas and needs,” Lyon said. “At ASU-Beebe, each of our technical training programs has an industry advisory committee that provides input and guides curriculum to ensure we are providing the necessary education and training employees will need to work in the industry.”
