Arkansas State University-Mountain Home has received a gift of stock valued at over $200,000 from the family of its founding chancellor. The Ed and Lucretia Coulter Performing Arts Endowment is designated for a holiday/fall seasonal show as part of the ASU-Mountain Home Performing Arts Series.

The stock, transferred at the sale of Integrity First Bank to Farmers and Merchants Bank in Stuttgart, is in recognition of the involvement of the former First National Bank and Trust in the development of the initial footprint of the campus and the Performing Arts Series by Dr. Coulter and his wife. First National Bank pledged $500,000 in 1997 to endow one of the four buildings on the campus. Throughout the years, the bank has supported the university through scholarships and sponsorship, including an inaugural season performance of the Arkansas Symphony in the Vada Sheid Community Development Center in 2010.

The 824-seat Ed Coulter Performing Arts Center is located inside the Sheid.
