Wilkerson Funeral Home of De Queen has donated to the University of Arkansas Cossatot Foundation Legacy 2020 capital campaign.

Room 206 located in the Frachiseur-Pulliam Building on the De Queen UA Cossatot Campus is now named the B Bud Wilkerson Classroom in memory of B Bud Wilkerson. Wilkerson Funeral Home representative Sarah Casteel said, “The college is an integral part of our community. By furthering the education of our area residents, it helps to ensure the future of our community, of which B Bud was so proud.”

UA Cossatot Foundation’s Legacy 2020 Campaign centers on donors and businesses that wish to invest in the growth of the college. A naming opportunity exists for donors who wish to leave a legacy for current and future students on any UA Cossatot campus.

“The Wilkerson family continually supports our community. It is truly inspiring to see great people invest in the future of local students,” said Dustin Roberts, UA Cossatot Coordinator of Development.  More information about the Legacy 2020 Campaign is available on the college’s website at
