On May 17, the Society for Technical Communication (STC) awarded its second-highest honorary rank, the rank of Associate Fellow, to Joseph J. Devney ’93. An Associate Fellow is a senior member of the STC community who has been formally recognized by the Society for having attained distinction in the field of technical communication.
Joseph has been active in STC since he began his career in technical communication in the mid-1990′s. He served as president of STC’s Berkeley Chapter for three years and served as judge for the STC’s International Technical Art Competition.
Joseph credits his HNU experience for nurturing his decision to pursue a career in technical communication. In response to achieving the rank of Associate Fellow he said, “My work judging the International Technical Art Competition was influenced partly by what I learned in my Graphic Arts class at Holy Names. The presentations I have given via STC and elsewhere are easier because of the two classes in public speaking that I took at Holy Names University.”
