La Voz Staff

Beth Grobman, mass communications instructor and adviser for La Voz Weekly, retired this summer after 24 years at De Anza, with 11 as coordinator of the Distance Learning Center.

In 1998, Grobman came over to Journalism as department chair and adviser to the school paper.

During her 13 years as adviser, she worked with 40 different staffs of reporters and editors. She took students to more than 20 regional and state-wide conferences. She was rewarded with seeing many of the students who passed through the newsroom transfer out to 4-year universities and later excel in media jobs.

Thank you, and happy retirement!

With the adviser position for the paper vacated, part time journalism/mass communications instructor Cecilia Deck has been chosen for the position.
