Garry D. Howard, editor-in-chief, Sporting News
We met in St. Petersburg way back in 1986 and Angelo Henderson was inspiring. As an up-and-coming sports copy editor, I had designs on one day running my own sports department, and Mr. Henderson believed in me—even back then.
He would offer support and anecdotes, introduce me to other journalists who might offer some insight and just became a great friend and trusted colleague.
He is brilliant, a writer's writer and and has a smooth touch that was evident even before he won a Pulitzer Prize.
More important, in my estimation, is his commitment to an organization that has helped each and every one of us realize our journalistic dreams.
