Scribner Wins Rising Star Award
Cleveland High School media teacher Teresa Scribner is one of 13 journalism advisers from around the country to receive the Journalism Education Association's 2016 Rising Star Award.
Established in 2006, the Rising Star Award honors new advisers who have shown a commitment to involvement and improvement for themselves and their students.
Scribner teaches multimedia and is also the adviser for Cleveland Publications, which handles the production of the school’s yearbook, newspaper and website. Under her leadership, the journalism program has won numerous awards and has gained a strong following after she incorporated video and social media into her classes.
Scribner graduated from the University of Arkansas in 2001 with Bachelor’s degrees in Art and Journalism. She was also a journalism fellow at the Poynter Institute for Media Studies in St. Petersburg, Florida in 2000.
Scribner was also a visual journalist for The Seattle Times, but recently left the company after working 12 years as a news page designer. She previously worked as a visual journalist in page design for the Northwest Arkansas Times in Fayetteville and the San Antonio Express-News in Texas.
During the summer, Scribner teaches workshops at journalism camps that specialize in student media.
