JEM and PR students representing the College of Media & Communications at South Central Broadcasting Society’s Regional Conference, Austin, TX, November 2013 (from l to r: Blake Silverthorn, Dr. Lea Hellmueller, Kaitlyn Kravik, and David Peveto).
I’m thankful for having the privilege of working with the students, faculty and staff here in the Department of Journalism & Electronic Media. We’ve been able to accomplish some amazing things and know that there are bigger and better things on the horizon. The faculty continues to make adjustments to the curriculum and we would like to have your input about what types of classes you would like to see us teach in the next year or so. Send your ideas to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will pass along to our JEM faculty.
JOUR Multiplatform Senior Projects Students, Veteran’s Panel, November 2013
The Tech Association for Student Electronic Media (TASEM) has come up with a slogan called: Be Awesome. In my opinion, that’s what we all need to do every single day — be awesome. This weekend, some of our JEM students won awards at the South Central Broadcasting Society’s Regional Competition in Austin. Blake Silverthorn, Erica Taylor and Eric Van Allen picked up a 1st Place Award for their Goin’ Band From Raiderland segment and Katilyn Cennamo won 1st Place for her “Active Shooter” Video News Feature Package. The Double T Insider production team won 2nd Place for Double T Insider! Congratulations!
SBC Awards, November 2013!
My hope is that you plan to submit to the upcoming BEA Festival of Arts Competition — it’s part of the Broadcast Education Association and they put on a national competition every year. The conference is in Las Vegas and I have some money for entry fees. BUT, I need to know how many students plan to submit entries! Take a look at the competition and see what you have that is AWESOME and let me know if you want to submit an entry:
I need to know by December 5, 2013 if you are going to submit something for consideration.

Dr. Jerod Foster, EMC major Jacob Copple and I are working on a project called “Texas Water Update” and we could use your help!
As you travel this holiday season, I’d like to ask a favor. If you have a camera and would be willing, could you take some pictures while you are traveling during the holidays and e-mail them back to us? We are hoping to start cataloging different pictures of land and water throughout the state of Texas. We aren’t looking for professional grade photography, but we’d like to show images from all parts of the state. If you are traveling and have the opportunity to photograph rangeland, farms, ranches, rivers, streams, lakes, playas, dry lakes, Gulf of Mexico, bays, etc….feel free to send your photos to: email@example.com
We are building a website and would like to identify as many different images as possible from as many different counties in the state of Texas. Please provide information related to the county and location (make sure it’s identifiable in the files).
Eat. Relax. Enjoy.
We’ve got just a few more days of the fall 2013 semester. Enjoy your holiday. Finish the semester strong — give every test, paper and assignment all you have. Be awesome.
