“He is the best teacher I have had at this university,” a student wrote last January in the evaluation of Zenebe Beyene.
Zenebe is the assistant dean at the School of Journalism and Communication at Addis Ababa University and a doctoral candidate at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He taught JOUR 400 International Communication during January Intersession at Ole Miss.
Thus, it was exciting to be invited to dinner by Zenebe’s family when I was in Addis last week. I had traveled to Ethiopia from Dubai to try to finalize the partnership agreement between Addis Ababa University and the Meek School of Journalism and New Media at The University of Mississippi.
