Looking back on 2012: The President's Perspective

Dec 6, 2012

As we wrap up the calendar year on the program, we look to highlight some of the more memorable discussions from The President's Perspective on KETR.

The December 2012 program starts with audio from a chat between Dr. Dan Jones, president of Texas A&M University-Commerce, and another news radio station, on the topic of the University's presence in downtown Dallas.

We also take the opportunity to listen back to a conversation Dr. Jones hosted with Dr. Barbara Tucker, who is heading up the A&M-Commerce Nursing Program.

Finally, we step back to June of this year, when Dallas Mavericks owner and TV personality Mark Cuban blogged about the high cost and lingering debt associated with the education of today's graduates. Dr. Jones took the chance to further that discussion, presenting the value of higher education in sharper detail against the backdrop of the economic state of education worldwide.

The President's Perspective is a monthly half-hour chat with Dr. Dan Jones, and is heard on the first Wednesday of each month at noon and again at 5pm on the air for all of northeast Texas at 88.9fm, and online for the world at
