Fitz Hill / Scott Ford Center for Entrepreneurship

Hill returned to Arkansas in December 2004, becoming executive director of the Ouachita Opportunity Fund at Ouachita Baptist University as well as co-founder and co-general manager of Life Champs Sports, a youth sports program headquartered in Little Rock. From 2004 to 2006, he was a visiting scholar and research associate at the University of Central Florida DeVos Sport Business Management Program. On February 1, 2006, Hill became the 13th president of Arkansas Baptist College, succeeding Israel R. Dunn, Jr. At the time Hill took over at ABC, there was no salary budgeted to pay him and the school’s enrollment had dipped to fewer than 200 students; the college was in danger of being stripped of its accreditation by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. In five years, the school grew enrollment to 1,100 students, its budget $2 million to nearly $20 million, and kept its accreditation.
