dc.descriptionDale Hartnett , is the interim administrator of the College’s Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching as well as an instructor in the Department of Communication at The College at Brockport. For 37 years, prior to spending his days on college campuses, he worked in the broadcast industry. His research takes him to small towns in Appalachia where he interviews “The Most Positive Person in Town.” James McCuller, Jr., the eldest son of Rochester civil rights leader and community organizer James McCuller, was raised in a family where standing up for belief in people and belief in God were of the highest value. Yet as he grew older, he slipped into a life of addiction, homelessness, repeated attempts at recovery, and occasional jail time. In 1983, his sister Alecia was killed by a Rochester police officer. James has fought to overcome addiction, to cope with anger and loss, and to build a bright future for himself.
