Mr. Steven Lewis
I graduated from Corning High School in 1996 and went on to Ouachita Baptist University. In December of 200, I graduated from Ouachita with a Bachelors of Arts degree in History and Political Science. While at Ouachita I served as a student manager for the football team and served on a mission team to Boulder, Colorado. In the summers of 1998, 1999, and 2000 I worked as a camp counselor and archery director at a summer camp in Sandwich, MA on Cape Cod.
After graduating from Ouachita Baptist, I worked for Senator Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas in the United States Senate as a Constituent Relations Specialist. On September 11, 2001, I was at my desk in the Senate office when the terrorist attacks occurred. I was honored on September 20, 2001, to represent the Senator's staff at the Joint Session of Congress President George W. Bush addressed in the wake of the September 11th attack. In June 2002, I left the Senators office and moved to Huron, South Dakota and worked on Senator Tim Johnson's reelection campaign.
I graduated from Arkansas State University in 2005, with a Bachelors of Science in Finance with an emphasis on Corporate Finance. Upon graduation, I joined Follett Higher Education Group as a bookstore manager and through this position, I was able to see our beautiful nation from sea to sea. I served in bookstores in Massachusetts, New York, Iowa, California, Florida, and Washington D.C. I left Follett in the fall of 2008 and moved back to Arkansas from Florida in 2009.

During this time I entered Arkansas Northeastern College to prepare to enter the APPEL Program through the Arkansas Department of Education.
