NCA Tribute to Dr. Melbourne Cummings


The National Communication Association (NCA) conference in Chicago included "A Tribute to Melbourne S. Cummings: Celebrating over 40 years as Scholar, Professor, Mentor, NCA Leader, and Colleague." Friends, former graduate students and colleagues were on hand for two wonderful panels; one led by colleagues and her dissertation chair, and one of former graduate students, now colleagues in the discipline. Dr. Cummings retired in June 2014 from Howard; however, she continues to reach all of us who have been touched as student, colleague, mentor or friend.


Book Notes
Dr. Joan Payne, interim chair of Communication Sciences and Disorders was recognized with her new book at the American Speech Language Hearing Association (ASHA) conference in Florida.
