Mass Communication head elected to two important posts

Loyola press release - February 2, 2009

Robert A. Thomas, Ph.D., interim director of the School of Mass Communication and the Loyola chair of Environmental Communications in the College of Social Sciences, was elected president of the Louisiana Children’s Museum board of directors for 2009-10. He was also elected to co-chair the steering committee of the Early Learning Village, a subsidiary of the LCM to be constructed in City Park.

Thomas has been widely recognized for his community work and was named one of New Orleans Magazine’s “People to Watch” last November for elevating the status of environmental issues in public discourse.

The Louisiana Children’s Museum is in its 20th year of service to the New Orleans community. According to its mission statement, the LCM “motivates children to develop their cognitive, physical and social skills while enjoying fruitful interaction with adults and peers.”
