Remembering Curt Chandler
We mourn the loss of Curt Chandler, a longtime ONA member and beloved mentor in our community. Curt dedicated more than a decade providing mentorship and visual journalism training in the Student Newsroom and Innovation Lab at our annual conference.
“I loved watching him work with students in the newsroom — he wanted them to learn and to soar … For me, well, Curt was always there to help. With teaching ideas, with equipment recommendations, with a smile and always…always…a willingness to come to the rescue,” said Peg Achterman, fellow mentor and Curt’s closest collaborator in the newsroom.
Read our tribute to Curt’s impact at ONA and donate to the Chandler Grant for Storytelling to continue this legacy.
