Tracy Halcomb

Tracy Halcomb

20 Years of Service, Professor of Communication & Internship Coordinator

"Tracy Halcomb has played a fundamental role in the Communication Department’s growth and development over the past two decades. Many students may fear her notoriously difficult Media Law exam, but they love her smart, common-sense approach and unflagging sense of humor. Colleagues respect her wisdom, experience, and strong sense of camaraderie. Congratulations to Dr. Halcomb, heart and soul of the Communication Department."

Tracey Eaton, Assistant Professor, Department Chair

Patrick Moser

20 Years of Service, Kenan Distinguished Professor of Art

"For twenty years, Professor Patrick Moser has inspired Flagler College students, asking them to wrestle with the conceptual and material boundaries of Fine Art. He has enhanced the Fine Art curriculum with new courses, such as Video Art, and created a transformational BFA degree in Fine Art. His professional practice is equally ambitious. Mining overheard snippets of casual conversation, puppetry, and experimental cinematography, Prof. Moser’s video and performance works are as comic and sardonic as they are praiseworthy. These video projects have been screened internationally, including at the FilmCrash Film Festival in Los Angeles, Madrid International Film Festival, London Experimental Film Festival, and Amsterdam Film Festival. His presence haunts all corners of the Molly Wiley Art Building, and we look forward to his future creative endeavors at Flagler College, including the upcoming international Finger Mullet Film Festival."
