What an evening with THE NEW YORK TIMES correspondents Michael Wines and Sharon LaFraniere on their first return to Louisville in 19 years!

It was exciting for us to see our educational mission come to life by connecting Kentucky students with professionals who walk the paths that they dream of taking someday. Through the generosity of an anonymous donor, KTW hosted 59 students from high schools including Iroquois, DuPont Manual, Pleasure Ridge Park, Atherton, Butler Traditional, and St Francis, as well as Louisville Classical Academy, Bellarmine University, The McConnell Center at University of Louisville, University of Kentucky School of Journalism and KCTCS. The event also offered proud students from Wines’ alma mater Pleasure Ridge Park the opportunity to award him as an entrant into the high school’s Alumni Hall of Fame.

Also in attendance were many friends and colleagues from Wines and LaFraniere’s early days at THE LOUISVILLE TIMES.

Special thanks to our presenters, moderator Pam Platt, and our sponsors for making this highly informative and inspirational evening happen.
