Wilmoth, who was formerly head of the Maumelle Area Chamber of Commerce, had accepted a job in economic development for the city of Cabot earlier this year and is in the process of relocating to Lonoke County.

Gustafson previously served on the advisory board for the school district from 2013 to 2016, when it was under state control, and is currently the associate dean of academic affairs at the Bowen School of Law at UALR, where she has worked since 1998.

Her undergraduate and law school degrees are both from Brigham Young University but went to high school at Oak Grove.
