Please join us in congratulating Dr. Dave Nolan, as he has just been awarded the National Press Photographers Association Robin F. Garland Educator Award! The award is given for outstanding service as a photojournalism educator. Dr. Nolan was a military photographer in the Air Force before his teaching career, and in addition to teaching in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, he also hosts the NPPA Advanced Storytelling Workshop held at Texas State University every year. This year’s workshop will be held March 29 – April 3, 2015. For more on Dr. Nolan, check out this video by SJMC student Micah Bustos: http://vimeo.com/68651097.
