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.  The interview is available by clicking on the Listen button.
