Matt Davis, English Teacher and Speech Coach, is the 2013 Award Winner of the Marcella E. Oberle Award. This award is sponsored by the National Communication Association Educational Policies Board and has been given for Outstanding Teaching in Grades K-12 since 1987.
The National Communication Association is the oldest and largest group dedicated to examining human communication. The NCA advances communication as the discipline that studies all forms, modes, media and consequences of communication through humanistic, social scientific and aesthetic inquiry. The NCA publishes journals, sponsors research, professional conventions, all in support of communication.
The NCA serves the scholars, teachers, and practitioners who are its members by enabling and supporting their professional interests in research and teaching. Dedicated to fostering and promoting free and ethical communication, the NCA promotes the widespread appreciation of the importance of communication in public and private life, the application of competent communication to improve the quality of human life and relationships, and the use of knowledge about communication to solve human problems.
The NCA National Convention falls November 21-24 where Matt Davis received the award in an official ceremony.
