Competent Communicator: Professor McKenna earns Toastmasters honor

Congratulations to Professor Kathleen McKenna, who has successfully completed the requirements for the Competent Communicator Award through participation in Toastmasters International’s communication program.

The communication program helps participants improve their speaking and leadership skills in a club environment. To finish the program, participants must complete a series of rigorous assignments that provide instruction and practice in the basic techniques of public speaking. Participants also learn to offer constructive evaluation of others’ efforts, and they have the opportunity to serve as club leaders. Since the program is self-paced, those completely the program show a high degree of self-motivation and a strong interest in self-improvement.

Congratulations, Professor McKenna!
