Jayne Flores is the Assistant Director of Communications and Promotions at Guam Community College. A former veteran of TV, radio and print journalism, Flores moved to Guam in 1984 as an investigative reporter for the former Guam Cable TV.
In 1987, she won a national Cable ACE award for her reporting of a Department of Corrections prison riot. Over the next two decades she wrote a newspaper column, served as editor-in-chief of Guahan Magazine, as news director for the Pacific News Center, and wrote and received a grant to produce a KGTF documentary about the first-ever performance of Handel’s Messiah in the Chamorro language.
One of the founding members of the Micronesia Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists, Flores was presented with the MSPJ Sunshine Award in 1999 for having testified to keep government documents accessible to public scrutiny over two weeks of public hearings about Guam’s open government law.
She left the world of journalism in 2009 to serve as the public relations point person for Guam Community College. Flores graduated from the University of Illinois in 1981 with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism, and earned her master’s degree in English from the University of Guam in 2011.
