David Tait (Carleton University)

"I have had a number of excellent professors in my four years studying at Carleton University's School of Journalism, but Prof. David Tait stands above them all. Tait does more than just emphasize the importance of CP Style – he inspires a desire in his students to be journalists who truly serve the public good. His lectures on ethics and integrity form the foundation of my understanding of a journalist's duty. This year, as in the last four years I have known him, I believe he has had a positive and long-lasting impact by teaching the next generation of newspeople to guard against cynicism and strive for the highest quality of journalism."
