Luiz Alberto de Farias was recognized as Educator of the Year by the Brazilian Association of Corporate Communication, Aberje. The award recognizes him for a professional career spanning more than 18 years of teaching communication and education. This is the 40th year the awards have been delivered.
The goal of the award is to recognize the importance of education in the development of the complex and evolving talent needed by the communications industry. According to Alberto de Farias, “It is an honor to receive this award, which is named in honor of the great James Heffernan, who was always a source of ideas and energy for many. I want to thank three great educators: Oscar Hipólito, Josiane Tonelotto and Margarida Kunsch, whose support has made this day possible.”
The selection of the 40th Educator of the Year award was made by a jury composed of Aberje leadership. The ceremony also awarded prizes for Media of the Year and Communicator of the Year.
