the Commissioner for the Arkansas Judicial Discipline Commission for 3 years. Most

When not working, Dr. Fulkerson can be found on the golf course. He describes himself as an “avid, but untalented, golfer” who has hit two holes in one, proving that luck is sometimes more important than skill. Also a talented musician (piano and organ), Dr. Fulkerson has played in blues, rock and country bands since 1965.
