Kim Green, the Journalism Education Association’s 2012 national Yearbook Adviser of the Year, will deliver the keynote address. Green is the adviser at North High School, Columbus, Ind.

Among the instructors for the conference are several faculty members of the A.Q. Miller School of Journalism and Mass Communications. Several JMC Ambassadors are also volunteering during the event.
