Mike McGraw: Celebration of his life and legacy
Join us for a celebration of the life and work of Mike McGraw, a long-time IRE member and leader and an award-winning journalist. There will be a short presentation on Mike's last project, plus memories shared by those who worked with him over his distinguished 40-plus-year career. Mike was the recipient of a Pulitzer Prize, IRE awards and many other honors. He served on the IRE board and the endowment committee and mentored countless journalists and students. The gathering also will serve as a fundraiser for a fellowship honoring Mike, who died in January.
Raise a glass in Mike's honor (cash bar available).
