Ashley County Assessor Beth Rush is a Crossett native, which easily explains her self-proclaimed role as one of its enthusiastic cheerleaders. 

This February, Rush will have spent the past 15 years working for the citizens of Ashley County, with 10 of those years as their assessor.

Rush said she graduated from Crossett High School in 1987, and before long she was performing accounting work for R&R Electric, employed by the company’s owner Jack Reynolds.
