In 30 years as adviser to the student newspaper and 25 years as adviser to the yearbook at Trinity High School in Louisville, where journalism is an honors course, he set an example for journalism education at the scholastic level. He guided the Echo newspaper and the Shamrock yearbook to many awards, started numerous journalists on significant careers, and made non-journalists better news consumers. He also co-moderated the school’s literary magazine, coached the speech team and chaired two academic departments. He was teacher of the year in the Archdiocese of Louisville in 1986, Greater Louisville High School Press Association Adviser of the Year in 1993, and winner of journalism-education awards from Western Kentucky University and the University of Kentucky in 2013 and 2015, respectively. A secondary-education and English graduate of Morehead State University, he also received two master’s degrees from Indiana University Southeast.
