The mission of the Vada Sheid Community Development Center is to Educate, Enlighten & Entertain!

The grand opening of the Vada Sheid Community Development Center was held on September 9, 2010. Known locally as The Sheid, the opening of this significant building on the ASUMH campus honored its defined mission of educating, enlightening and entertaining.

This multi-purpose, LEED-certified two-story facility is 67,000 square feet. The community center features: the Ed Coulter Performing Arts Center with a capacity of 824 or 1,600, the McClure Convention Center that can seat up to 500 or be divided into smaller meeting rooms.

Vada Sheid was the Baxter County treasurer from 1960-1965. Ms. Sheid was state representative for District 5 (Baxter and Fulton counties) 67-68. In 1976, Sheid was elected to the District 20 state Senate seat representing Baxter, Marion, Boone, Searcy, and Newton counties.

Among her many achievements, in 1994, Sheid worked to get funding approved to establish a viable college in Mountain Home. Because Mountain Home had never received any funding for higher education, $1.2 million was granted to purchase land where the ASUMH campus resides now. This critical seed money got the ball rolling and led to many area residents supporting the development of the college in Mountain Home.
