Monticello-University of Arkansas-Monticello’s associate journalism professor Ronald Sitton spoke to students at the Journalism Club’s Last Lecture April 18 in the Memorial Classroom Building Auditorium.

   He spoke about his journey to getting to where he is today and some mistakes along the way hoping students will learn from him and not do the same.

   Although it took a few mistakes for Sitton to realize what he wanted to do the rest of his life, he learned from those mistakes and came to the realization that he wanted to teach.

   “I love seeing the lightbulb go off in students. It’s beautiful,” Sitton said.

   His speech was centered around his mistakes and how he learned from them and kept on persevering. Sitton often teaches in his communication writing class to learn from your mistakes and not make the same ones over and over again when writing an article. In his speech he talked about it in a broader sense, stressing to not make the same mistakes over and over in life.

   Sitton concluded with seven helpful tips for life, including: If you want something you must get it yourself, never stop learning, tell the truth especially when it hurts, persistence provides the key, failure begins the path to success, you control your self-worth, give and know your shortcomings.
