Arizona Humanities Announces Its 2017 Award Winners

Arizona Humanities has announced its 2017 award winners — they include an English professor at ASU, the founder of a program that brings veterans into classrooms, and the archivist and librarian of the Chicano Research Collection at ASU.

With me to talk about the winners is Brenda Thompson, executive director of Arizona Humanities. She explains what criteria they look at when considering who the award recipients will be.

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
