Moore accepts new position with ASU

Dr. Robert L. Potts, chancellor of Arkansas State University-Jonesboro, has appointed ASU's longtime director of University Communications, Thomas A. Moore of Walnut Ridge, as executive assistant to the chancellor.

Moore's new duties began Monday, March 10. Those duties will include oversight of and assistance with correspondence, contracts, speechwriting, and communications pertaining to various matters of public interest at ASU. Moore will also remain a consultant to the Office of University Relations and its director, Markham Howe.

Moore joined the staff of ASU in 1985. He earned his bachelor's degree in journalism from ASU in 1973, and his master of public administration degree at ASU in 1991.

In addition to his 23 years of experience in University Communications, where he worked extensively with local, state, regional and national media outlets and media representatives, Moore also has a background in news writing and photography, having worked as editor of The Times Dispatch and as a reporter at The Jonesboro Sun.

"I will miss the day-to-day contact with news media representatives I have enjoyed over the years," Moore said. "Gathering and reporting the news is a noble calling, and I have had the pleasure to work with some really fine people who are dedicated to the craft. However, I look forward to assisting Chancellor Potts as he pursues his goals for ASU-Jonesboro."

Moore and his wife, Darlene, have a son, Matthew, who is a freshman at ASU. Moore is the son of Truman and Bonnie Moore of Walnut Ridge.
