Frostburg State University’s Dr. Elesha L. Ruminski, chair of the Department of Communication Studies, received the 2012 National States Advisory Council (NSAC) Administrator of the Year Award. NSAC is affiliated with the National Communication Association (NCA), which promotes the widespread appreciation of the importance of communication in public and private life.
Ruminski has been honored for her experience as a leader for many projects at FSU and her involvement with the Maryland Communication Association (MCA). She served as the first vice president of MCA, an organization in which her mentors served as leaders as well. During her first year at MCA, she took a bold step and volunteered to organize the conference.
Ruminski is pleased at the positive attention the award brought the FSU Communication Studies Department and the substantial opportunities it offers students to get involved.
“It’s more about the way the work is connected,” she said.
