Professor John Roussell: All the Right Moves

Communication design professor John Roussell’s dance moves are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to his presence on campus. The CSU, Chico alum recently received the 2013–14 Outstanding Teacher Award, but Roussell is also making an impact outside of the classroom. He is awaiting the premiere of No Excuses, a documentary he’s making with his wife, CSU, Chico kinesiology professor Cathrine Himberg. While in New York making the film, Roussell performed his variation of the salsa in Jay Z’s Grammy-nominated music video “Picasso Baby.”

Public Affairs and Publications social media intern Quinn Western talked with Roussell about his recent activities and even learned a few moves herself.
