Christina Geabhardt named 2019 JEA Broadcast Adviser of the Year

The following message announcing this year’s JEA Broadcast Adviser of the year honorees was posted to the JEA Listserv this morning by JEA Awards Committee Chair Karen Slusher.

Last Friday, JEA surprised Christina Geabhardt, MJE, with the Broadcast Adviser of the Year award. Geabhardt, who teaches at Oak Park High School (Kansas City, Missouri), has been teaching journalism for the past 17 years.

Along with recognizing Geabhardt, JEA also named Andrew Chambers, CJE, of Richland Northeast High School (Columbia, South Carolina) with the Distinguished Broadcast Adviser award and Patrick Moring, CJE, of Rampart High School (Colorado Springs, Colorado) with the Special Recognition Broadcast Adviser award.

All three advisers will be formally recognized next month during the JEA/NSPA convention in Washington, D.C.

The Broadcast Adviser of the Year Award, sponsored by Loyola University New Orleans School of Communication and Design, honors outstanding high school advisers and their exemplary work from the previous year, as well as throughout their careers.
