DeJohn Honored at Chamber Luncheon

         Dave DeJohn, teacher at Galena Park High School, was recognized as the Galena Park ISD Educator of the Month during the April North Channel Area Chamber of Commerce luncheon in the Monument Room at San Jacinto College North.
         Under his guidance, the Buzz Media students at Galena Park High School placed second nationally in the Bridges media competition and were also finalists at South by Southwest Film Competition in Austin. DeJohn was recently appointed as lead teacher for the new CASH Academy at Galena Park High School.
         The native Houstonian began his career with All That Media, LLC before his first teaching job in Clear Creek ISD two years ago. He enjoyed success in his first year of teaching as his students were finalists in the South by Southwest Film festival as well as winners of the coveted Lone Star Emmy student award.
