    justin D
    Justin Daigle is being recognized as one of the top five Journalism Education Association advisers in the nation.  Herff Jones nominated Justin last Spring and ten students, parents, colleagues, and industry professionals shared their firsthand experience of working with him through letters of recommendation. All nominees were asked to respond to a series of essay questions and were then observed doing what they do best, teaching and inspiring student journalists to tell the stories of the their schools.

    Justin has been the keynote speaker at numerous conferences throughout the country including Utah and Washington DC and will be heading to Hawaii this summer for an all-expense paid trip to speak to students on the Big Island. To see Justin with his yearbook students or to see one of his  keynote speeches is a real treat. Justin will receive the Special Recognition Award at JEA's Denver conference in April.
