Pattye and Mark Moore were hosts for a reception in the home of Sissy and Dan Tubb.  Alumni of the University of Oklahoma Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication School listened to an update on plans about phase II of Gaylord Hall and were told about the dedication ceremonies which are set for Oct. 13th at 1:30 p.m.

Students from the Gaylord Ambassadors student leadership program and alumni members were guests.

College Dean Joe Foote was speaker and he talked about the new faculty members who were there: John Schmeltzer and Robert “Pritch” Pritchard.

Schmeltzer is the Engleman-Livermore Professor of Community Journalism and Pritchard is faculty advisor to the new student-run Ad and PR firm, L+A Group.

Sissy Tubb is the daughter of Oklahoma fan, the late Cecil Samara, and guests enjoyed seeing her dad’s collection of Sooner memorabilia dating back to the 1950’s including numerous OU buttons, glasses, programs, ticket stubs, footballs, watches, belt buckles and other jewelry.

An update on The Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication was given by Dean Joe Foote of the college.
