New York—The Society of Professional Journalists named Dr. George Keeler from the University of La Verne as the 2004 David L. Eshelman Outstanding Campus Adviser award winner.

The Eshelman Outstanding Campus Adviser award honors an individual who has contributed his or her time and energy as an SPJ campus chapter adviser and to the national organization over a period of time. The award was presented to Dr. Keeler on Saturday, Sept. 11 at a luncheon during the 2004 SPJ national convention in New York City.

Dr. Keeler founded the ULV student chapter 19 years ago, and served as its first president. His students speak highly of the way he fosters student connections to the real world through SPJ by linking students to their future editors and professional peers. In addition to his campus role, Dr. Keeler has served on the board of the Los Angeles Pro chapter and in 1998 he worked during SPJ’s national convention as an adviser for the Working Press newspaper.

The Society of Professional Journalists works to improve and protect journalism. The organization is the nation’s largest and most broad-based journalism organization, dedicated to encouraging the free practice of journalism and stimulating high standards of ethical behavior. Founded in 1909 as Sigma Delta Chi, SPJ promotes the free flow of information vital to a well-informed citizenry; works to inspire and educate the next generation of journalists; and protects First Amendment guarantees of freedom of speech and press.
