My family taught me faith, hope & hard work.
As a son of two preachers, I was raised with a strong sense of faith. This faith has never collided with my love for science — in fact, it only made it grow stronger. I attended Morehouse College on a NASA Scholarship, for physics and math, then studied at MIT to become a nuclear engineer and earn a Ph.D. in urban planning. I was blessed to run the Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub, which provided the tools and technology Arkansans needed to build businesses and create jobs.
The Promise of Arkansas
The Promise of Arkansas is the Faith that together we can address our challenges. As an engineer, minister, and former non-profit leader, with deep roots in Arkansas, Chris Jones has the experience to lead, passion to enact change, and work ethic to work for every Arkansan.
