Iowa Western Students Earn Communication Honors
Council Bluffs, Iowa - Students from Iowa Western Community College were recently honored for speaking out in the classroom. Since 2008, the Iowa Communication Association has recognized college students who have completed a required number of credits in speech communication courses with a high level of accomplishment, and several Iowa Western students have earned that honor for 2013.

Students are judged and honored for their skills in courses such as public speaking, interpersonal communication, small group discussion, intercultural communication, oral interpretation, professional communication, organizational communication, radio and TV communication, and other courses directly related to speech communication.
