Belhaven Professor Honored With Prestigious Award

Dr. Elayne Hayes-Anthony, Professor and Chair of the Communications Department, was recently named the 2014 recipient of the Mississippi Humanities Council Teacher Award. The award recognizes the contribution of humanities faculty at each of the state’s colleges and universities.

As part of the award’s commitment to the humanities, each recipient prepares and delivers a public lecture prior to receiving this prestigious award. Dr. Anthony presented her lecture “Breaking News: A Christian Journalist Perspective,” right here on campus last week to a packed audience in Barber Auditorium.

With the attention that the news media is garnering in America, Dr. Anthony’s lecture provides a unique Christian viewpoint at how Christian journalists report in today’s high-paced media environment. To view the entire presentation, check out the video below.
