Thom Storey died Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2018, following a lengthy battle with cancer. Thom was a faculty adviser for Belmont University for years and chaperoned students to conferences all over the Southeast. In 1993, he was named Journalism Educator of the Year by SEJC. He loved going to SEJC conferences, working with students and catching up with colleagues. Many of you will remember him as the quick-witted man in the Hawaiian shirt.
He was a member of the Belmont faculty since 1985 and served as chair of Belmont’s Media Studies department. After starting his career as a sports writer and columnist, he moved on to cover a variety of topics, including working as a copy and travel editor at The Tennessean for many years.
