Rock Box party: An AAJA Seattle sendoff for David Boardman on July 29

Join AAJA Seattle as we say goodbye to Seattle Times Executive Editor David Boardman. Boardman is leaving to become dean of the School of Media and Communication at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pa.

Boardman has been a champion of AAJA and the Seattle chapter, supporting our scholarship, donating auction items to our lunar banquet and coming to our annual Northwest Journalists of Color Scholarship night. He is one of the few executive editors in the nation who makes it a priority to personally attend our national convention. I could not have served as AAJA national president without his support.

You may remember Dave’s karaoke rendition of “No Woman, No Cry” from our lunar banquet. Or perhaps you saw the legendary performance of “Proud Mary” he did with former Washington Post executive editor Marcus Brauchli at the UNITY convention in 2012. This is your last opportunity to duet with Dave in Seattle. Let’s see if we can get him to sing “Baby Got Back.”
