Now, the big topic: Please send us a name, or multiple names, to be considered for the Hall of Honor. As Doug says, we'd like to build up a group of candidates.
Send nominations to dougpils (at) aol.com -- Here are the details:
The Texas A&M Former Journalism Students Association is looking for nominations for our 2011 Hall of Honor nominee. If you know an A&M journalism or ag journalism grad who has had or is still having an outstanding career in our field, please send along his or her name, year of graduation and some details about why this person should be considered. We'd like to build a good list of people this year, so we have a strong group to consider in the coming years.
