Black journalists' group honors veterans and students



The Enquirer

Veteran and student journalists were honored Tuesday night at the inaugural Hall of Fame & Scholarship Awards of the Cincinnati chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists.

Hall of Fame Awards went to:

• Allen Howard, an Enquirer reporter for 28 years and author of the "Good Things Happening" column.

• Melvin Grier, Cincinnati Post photographer for 30 years.

• Hasker Nelson, who retired from WCPO-TV in 1999 after 261/2 years as executive producer, reporter and production manager.

Two students at Hughes Center High School - seniors Ashley Worthy and Lauren Doggett - received Delilah Leontium Beasley Scholar awards for $500, donated by Procter & Gamble.

Cincinnati Black Theatre Company provided music for the ceremony in the Enquirer's downtown office. Keynote speaker was managing editor Hollis Towns.
