Bullard is confident the newspaper this year will be good or better than the one last year. The goal of the newspaper is to keep the students interested in the News Argus. “I feel we have a good staff of writers this semester. They are eager to work and it will be enjoyable to work with them.” “I wish that the university body would realize that we are one big family and we should work close together for one thing which will benefit both of us (students and faculty). We are lacking the unity that is needed, we need to work together,” stated Bullard. When asked the question, who do you ad mire the most in the Mass Communication field (radio, television, journalism) and 1 why? Bullard said, “Ed Bradley, (60 Minutes, television), because he possesses all the qualities and experience in the Mass Communications field that I would like to have.” After graduation Bullard would like to work on a newspaper or magazine staff preferably (MAD, CRACKED or National Lampoon). He enjoys swimming, reading, listening to music and working with children. Most of all he enjoys helping others and spending time with his family.
