Students plan Communication Week
Angola Mayor issues proclamation
Angola Mayor Richard Hickman has proclaimed the week of April 13 Communication Week, and accepted a Trine University polo shirt from the Trine sports media and promotion class in recognition of the fact.
Angola Mayor Richard Hickman (seated) is presented with a Trine University polo shirt by some members of the Trine sports media and promotion class as he proclaims the week of April 13 Communication Week. Communication majors from left are Kelly Tresick, Carla Moody, Ryan Brennell, Rachel Grove and Aaron Williams.
The class created, proposed, coordinated, and promoted the week of activities, and worked with the Communication Department, WEAX Radio, Office of Student Life, and Bon Appetit to present it. Under the direction of professor Mike McNamara, the students will bring nearly two dozen speakers to campus during the event, which is free and open to the public. Presentations will include “Women in Communication,” “Sports Media,” and “Public Relations.”
The week will include free food, athletic contests, Wacky Wednesday, and the opportunity to visit Trine’s revitalized campus. The event will benefit the Steuben County Humane Society, which will host an Adopt-A-Pet Day and provide material to educate participants about the organization. Trine University students and faculty are collecting newspapers and pet food before and during Communication Week to donate to the Humane Society.
“This event will be a positive experience for the class and the community, as not only is it a hands-on special event and learning experience, but also helps a local organization in need,” Hickman’s proclamation states.
