Scot Loyd, assistant professor of communication studies and director of forensics and debate, shared OBU’s weekly online chapel devotion Wednesday, April 29. The message streamed on Facebook Live on the OBU Facebook page. The chapel message was the sixth since the University moved to fully online learning for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester.
Loyd earned a Bachelor of Arts in speech communication and theater from Arkansas State University as well as a Master of Arts in communication studies with specific studies in media and health communication. Prior to coming to OBU, he served as an instructor of communication arts at Louisiana College, where he also served as the director of forensics.Students will continue earning chapel credits for the remainder of the semester by watching the chapel message online and then answering a brief quiz in the University’s Canvas Learning System. Students who are unable to view the service via Facebook Live have access to the videos in Canvas after the live broadcast concludes. The messages will also be available on the OBU YouTube Channel on the OBU Chapel playlist.
