How Press Secretary and Journalism Teacher Bob Mann Leaves a Legacy - Matt Curtis

In Chapter 5 of 17, public affairs and communications strategist Matt Curtis shares the story of Bob Mann, a Democratic Party Press Secretary for Ted Kennedy, a Carter Administration official, and an inspiration to generations of students, including Bush press secretary Karen Hughes. Mann, a career newspaperman, immerses himself into politics and, over time, education, teaching journalism at several Texas schools, including Huston Tillotson University of Texas, Texas State, and SMU. At the sunset of his career, Mann has not only left a legacy across his Democratic political party work as legislative aide and press secretary, but more importantly as that one teacher who made the greatest difference to so many aspiring communications professionals.
