"I currently have been promoted to senior counsel for Tyson's, Inc., where I have worked for four years," McBeth said. "Additionally, my 85-year-old father, who resides with our family, has recently been diagnosed with an inoperable aneurysm. It is a very bittersweet decision on my part, but I have decided I cannot do it all at this time."
McBeth's position will expire Dec. 31 and her replacement will be made by the governor. McBeth, who is a licensed attorney in Arkansas, a Certified Mediator, and a former Deputy Prosecutor of Carroll County, also serves as a Corporate In-House Counsel. She has previously served on several boards, and periodically teaches legal courses. She has been a resident of Eureka Springs and the Western District for 15 years, and of Arkansas for most of her life.
