President Chatt G. Wrights’ forty-plus years of service for the HPU community is an inherent part of the Department of Communication. His tenure is reflected in the progress of our department; including over 600 internships for the students of communication. Internships that have allowed students to learn effective job skills. The Communication Department has flourished with seventeen National Newspaper Awards, seventeen Documentary Film National Awards, eleven American Advertising Federation District Championships, nine HPU Valedictory Speakers Since 2000, three Debate State Championships and three Polyglot Toastmasters National Awards. Chatt G. Wright has been one of the longest serving presidents at a private university, and a very fine one. Wright's accomplishments will be long remembered  by the faculty and students of the Communication Department. Our faculty bid him farewell this month at his favorite restaurant. We wish him happiness, and thank him for his unyielding support.
