Erec Smith has been teaching rhetoric for 15 years, four of which have been at York College. In Smith's courses, he teaches his students the study of effective communication.

The York Daily Record reports:

“You can get a lot out of this election,” he said.

The second presidential debate between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton took place Sunday night at Washington University in St. Louis.
