Big changes in the U.S. Department of Education’s Press Office: Dorie Turner Nolt, who is currently the assistant director of communications at the Georgia Department of Education, is taking the helm at the press office. (The position became vacant when Daren Briscoe left to become a vice-president at GMMB, a public relations and consulting firm in Washington.)
Does Turner Nolt’s name sound familiar? It shoud … edu-readers know her byline from when she was an education reporter for the Associated Press, based in Atlanta. She’s also written for the Chattanooga Times Free Press and Newsweek.
