It has been an exciting year. After working for 20 years at Eastern Illinois University, I decided that I needed a change. So, as of July 1st, I become the department head for the Communication Arts program at Valdosta State University. The program includes dance, mass media, speech communication, and theatre. Among many other activities, we have a strong summer musical theatre program, the Peach State Summer Theatre, the offical musical theatre of the State of Georgia. Cate and I went to their first show when we were house hunting and were blown away by Marry Poppins.
We also have a nationally competitive Forensic's program. The VSU Forensics (Speech and Debate) Team won the Delta Sigma Rho Tau Kappa Alpha National Debate Championship in 2013.
Students in our media program won an award recently at the Georgia College and State University’s BALD Shorts Film Festival for a short film produced by a faculty-student team during our second annual 48-Hour Film Festival.
