National Advisory Council member Doug Martin was born and raised in the small coal-mining community of Delbarton, West Virginia. After a stint as a Walt Disney Imagineer, Martin returned to his hometown to teach graphic design and illustration at the Mingo Career and Technical Center. The students in Martin's small rural classes are regularly recruited by some of the nation's top art and design colleges and universities, and they have been the recipients of more than a million dollars in scholarship money over the past few years.
