Thanks to Director Andy Fickman

Not much blog activity as I try to catch up from the NMSU reunion weekend and get ready for ICA conference deadline.

The highlight of the week was Hollywood director -- and Texas Tech alumnus -- Andy Fickman speaking to my class on Thursday. If I teach another 40 years, I may never have a guest speaker this good.

He was hilarious, and his success shows how far a Tech grad can go even with no previous connections in Hollywood.

Fickman directed The Game Plan, which was the number one movie in America for two consecutive weeks this month.

This morning our college honored Fickman as one of five 2007 college of mass communications outstanding alumni. The honor is well deserved.
