While reading the Chronicle I noticed that R. Veals contributed articles that were published.  I also noticed that she is classified as a freshman majoring in Mass Communications.  I perceive that Miss Veals has strong writing skills and has an act of knowing what  readers are interested in reading.  I applaud Miss Veals for taking on a task of that sort in her freshman year.  I also applaud her Mass Communications Advisor for affording her such a great opportunity early in her career.  I expect to see her hosting the Morning Show on NBC or CBS in the very near future.  Miss Veals keep up the good work, and to the Advisor of Mass Communications Students at Alcorn State, I say keep up the good work.
