"It is really important for us to stress the importance of communicating to a group of people, it may be one person or a thousand people." says Dr. Mary Jackson-Pitts, interim chair of the Department of Radio-Television at Arkansas State. She said no matter the job everyone has to communicate in some way.

The event was hosted by both the Radio-Television Department as well as the Journalism Department which is headed by Dr. Gil Fowler.
