Rick was nominated by longtime Pennsylvania adviser Kathleen Zwiebel, who noted that Brooks mentors because he enjoys helping students succeed.
“On our state level, Rick has spoken at conventions, served as a judge and helped to develop the Pennsylvania School Press Association yearbook contest guidelines," Zwiebel wrote. "He has been an active participant that PSPA elected him as a member of the executive board. This is a tribute to his talent and to the fact that Rick is interested in helping all scholastic journalists, not just those at schools affiliated with his company.”
Rick will be recognized at the Journalism Education Association/National Scholastic Press Association Advisers Awards Luncheon at the fall convention in Chicago.
