Executive Board Election Results



TAJE is pleased to announce the results of the February board election. We are grateful to everyone who ran for a position on the board as well as to all of our members who voted in last week’s election. You can read more about these new board members below. They will serve on the board in their new roles from 2022-2024.


President-Elect – Michael Reeves

Michael Reeves is the adviser of Dispatch Media at James Bowie High School in Austin. His students produce the Dispatch newspaper, thedispatchonline.net online newspaper, and coming soon: a pair of digital magazines. One will be focused on pop culture while the other will be sports-based. Students in his award-winning program create content across the journalism spectrum from long form, feature-based pieces to podcasts, videos and robust social media offerings. After nearly 20 years leading publications, one of his favorite things to do is to work with other programs around the country to learn and share ideas. Reeves is married to his wife Katie, and they have one amazing daughter named Flannery.
