Saturday, I was honored to receive a communty service award from the South Florida International Press Club, which usually meets the first Wednesday of each month.
Joining me at the luncheon on Saturday at Miami Shores Country Club were three men from Pridelines Youth Services of Miami: From left, Luigi Ferrer, director of Programs & Grant Development; Nicolas Roldan; and Jose Villar-Portela, Outreach & Health Promotions specialist. (I'm the one in the sport coat.)
The club was founded in 1986 to promote fellowship and understanding among men and women engaged in journalism and its allied fields; to sponsor such cultural, educational and social activities as may promote good fellowship and professional growth among members; to extend reciprocity to similar clubs in other parts of the nation and world; to engage in fund raising activities for educational purposes; and to provide college scholarships to individuals pursuing a career in journalism.
