Thank You Lekeitha Morris, Associate Professor, Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences

If there is power in words, someone who enables another to speak, must be a superpower. Lamar University has such a superpower.

Lekeitha empowers individuals with communication disorders to communicate and best of all, she shares her superpower with her students.

“Everything I teach is in my area of expertise. It’s really nice to be part of a faculty in which we are able to teach what we love. We all teach in areas we do research in and that we’re passionate about. I appreciate that about our program here.”
