If you Google Dr. Tameka Winston’s name, you will see that she is one of Alcorn State University’s most active alumni. The professor, author, Sirius XM radio host and researcher’s path to fame as a journalist and educator is nothing short of spectacular. She continues to add to her success by accepting the interim chair of the Tennessee State University Department of Communications.
Winston will take over a department that has over 400 majors, making it one of TSU’s largest programs. As interim chair, she plans to continue to improve student learning, obtain Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications (ACEJMC) accreditation and improve outreach activities, among other things. She credits her faith as the driving force behind her newest accomplishment.
