Eight Houston journalists are being honored by Harris County Department of Education for their fair and balanced reporting about public schools. As 2018 Media Honor Roll awardees, the journalists are specifically nominated for supporting education service programs within HCDE.

Media Honor Roll inductees for 2018 (and their support acknowledgements):

Houston Style Magazine managing editor Jo-Carolyn Goode (preschool services through Head Start); River Oaks Examiner reporter Rebecca Hazen (GED classes through Adult Education); Telemundo 47 KTMD reporter Antonio Hernandez (preschool services through Head Start and English classes through Adult Education); Channel 13 KTRK reporter Samica Knight (afterschool through CASE for Kids); African American News publisher Roy Douglas Malonson (afterschool through CASE for Kids and preschool programs via Head Start); Channel 11 KHOU assistant news director Wiley Post (teacher professional development through Teaching and Learning Center); Channel 39 KIAH reporter Mike Rosenhouse (afterschool programs through CASE for Kids); and Channel 2 KPRC special projects producer Debbie Strauss (for supporting at-risk student services through Schools division).

The program is sponsored by the Texas Association of School Boards, a nonprofit which serves local Texas school districts and represents 5.3 million public school students. Honorees receive a framed certificate, and their names appear in the TASB website at www.tasb.org.

“As we provide education support services to school districts and taxpayers in Harris County, these journalists help us spread the word about programs that help at-risk students, adult learners, afterschool programs, professional development for teachers and other support services,” said James Colbert Jr., county school superintendent.

“We appreciate their professionalism as they gather and share education news and their dedication to presenting news in a fair, accurate and balanced manner.”
