Three College of Mass Communication employees have been recognized for outstanding service to MTSU and the community.

Yvonne Elliott, executive aide in MTSU’s Center for Popular Music, is the recipient of the university’s first Quarterly Secretarial/Clerical Award for the 2014-15 academic year. Elliott began working for MTSU seven years ago in the General Education Department and, after briefly working with the Confucious Institute, joined the Center of Popular Music in August 2010.

Recording Industry Professor Michael S. Fleming and Academic Adviser Nancy E. Stubblefield were honored with MTSU Foundation Awards at the recent Fall Faculty Meeting at Tucker Theatre. Fleming was one of three faculty members awarded the Outstanding Achievement in Instructional Technology Award. In 2013, Fleming and fellow Recording Industry professor, Bill Crabtree, co-chaired the 50th international conference of the Audio Engineering Society, producing 29 peer-reviewed papers on audio education and featuring workshops on audiology pedagogy, industry relations and curriculum training. Fleming came to MTSU in 2004 and teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in audio technology, studio techniques and critical listening.

Stubblefield was of three recipients of the Foundation’s Outstanding Public Service Award. Stubblefield coauthored a grant for a Career Sampler Day Camp to give middle school students an opportunity to learn about majors offered at MTSU. The camp includes field trips to campus as well as off-campus field trips to Murfreesboro Airport and the MTSU dairy farm. Stubblefield came to MTSU in 2007 as a career coordinator and taught UNIV 1010 courses before joining Mass Comm’s academic advising team.
