Yates HS communications instructors don’t just teach…they are recognized by their peers for great work in their craft through the Communicator Awards, which are given out by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts.

Television and film instructor Omar Peters won a Silver Communicator Award of Distinction for his food desert documentary called, “Dining in the Desert.” His award also recognizes his student crew, David Funchess, Savian Nugent, and Rickardo Haley.

Graphic design instructor Delilah Whitmore, printing tech instructor Ronnie Morgan, and commercial photography instructor Ray Carrington all collaborated on the 2014/2015 magnet recruiting & marketing posters called, “The Real Series.” They won the Gold Communicator Award of Distinction.

Even the magnet coordinator, Ted Irving, won a Gold Communicator Award of Distinction for his work on the Houston PressHow Houston Cooks: Boheme. Instructors at the Yates School of Communications defy the old theory that “Those who can, do. Those who can’t, teach.”

Yates instructor do—and they win.
