CATE is sad to announce the death of Olga Kokino, long-time journalism teacher at University High School in Los Angeles, where she established an outstanding journalism program.
Olga earned her BA and teaching credential at UCSB and a Masters degree at UC Riverside, received National Board Certification, published a textbook series on journalism, and served as president of the Los Angeles Journalism Teachers’ Association.She was an active CATE member and coordinated the CATE Professional Writing Contest.
Her friend and colleague, Bill Younglove, notes that Olga was “not defined so much by her valiant eleven year struggle against breast cancer as she was by her influence upon thousands of journalism students.”
Because of this news, we are extending the deadline for the current Professional Writing Contest until January 31 2017. Details can be found at www.CATEweb.org.
Please send your entry to the acting coordinator, Bill Younglove: firstname.lastname@example.org
And if you have already submitted an entry, please resubmit to Bill Younglove.
Thank you for your patience.
