Don't be surprised if you see Michel Martin tearing up a bit on Thursday, May 8, when she visits Miami to receive this year's Hank Meyer Headliner Award -- even she's worried about crying a little.

It's her very pathos and determination to pull people from all aspects of life into roundtable discussions and in-depth interviews that have earned the host of NPR's "Tell Me More" the award, from the Miami Coalition of Christians and Jews.

Last week’s Twit­ter Edu­ca­tion Forum, hosted last week in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Tell Me More was a huge success. Not only did it pro­vide a plat­form for a dynamic and diverse con­ver­sa­tion about edu­ca­tion reform in the US (and one that we plan to con­tinue), but it also reached a whop­ping 17 mil­lion peo­ple–and count­ing. (That’s right. They’re stilll Tweet­ing. They just can’t stop!)

This week, NPR's Tell Me More and StateImpact Florida hosted an international Twitter conversation about education reform at the WLRN studios. South Florida social media maven Alex de Carvalho (@alexdc) was one of the thousands of people to participate to join that conversation. He organizes regular local web and technology gatherings and is a founding member of RefreshMiami.
