The Elizabeth City State University Department of Language, Literature and Communication
will hold a spring conference, "Making the Network: Your Future in the Workplace,"
The conference will bring graduates from ECSU's communication program back to the
department to recount their experiences as writers, reporters, program hosts and educators.
Many of these alumni graduated from the department during the past 10 years. They
will discuss their work during a panel discussion moderated by Professor Wayne Dawkins
of the Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications at Hampton University.
Rehema Ellis, a NBC news correspondent, will deliver the morning welcome to participants
and attendees on March 24. The department will present local dentist, Dr. C.B. Jones
Jr., with its Community Involvement Award for bringing jazz programming to the university
over 15 years.
The events are open to the public.
One of the highlights of the conference will be the establishment of a scholarship
for future communication students. For more information, please contact Mr. Parnell
