Dr. Sandra Massey leads the efforts at the three campuses that make up ASU-Newport. Those are in Newport, in Jonesboro, and in Marked Tree. In this interview, Dr. Massey says some exciting things are taking place this year.
Two of those things include a new mascot for ASU-Newport, the Aviators. The school will also change colors, from red and black to Persian Blue and Pewter Grey. According to a press release from ASU-Newport, the decision for Aviators was made based on the history of Newport and Jackson County. ASU Newport's flagship campus is located on a former Army base, which was home for thousands of people who worked and lived in Jackson County.
