I wanted to take a minute to say thank you, so much, for taking the
time out of your busy schedule to speak to my class on October 25th.
It was such a pleasure to have you as a guest of our University.
As a Broadcast News professor, I find that there are more aspects
of electronic news gathering than could ever be covered in a 15 week
semester. My intent is to provide my students with as much information
as possible in that short time period about the profession they have
chosen. By inviting news professionals like you to the class, you
help to bridge the gap between the academic and professional worlds.
Your talk about news editing was extremely informative and ,as I
heard from students later, you answered many of their questions about
editing, both aesthetic and technical. The instructional packet you
created showed an incredible amount of time invested, which I greatly
Heather has mentioned to me that you would like to speak to our broadcast
News classes again. If this would be possible, I look forward to talking
with you and arranging other speaking engagements in the near future.
It was truly a learning experience to have you as a guest speaker
in my class.
