Deadline looming for McGruder honor
Don't miss the May 16 deadline to send in your nomination for an award honoring individuals, news organizations or related journalistic organizations or teams of journalists who embody the spirit of Robert G. McGruder. He was a former executive editor of the Detroit Free Press, former managing editor of The Plain Dealer in Cleveland, graduate of Kent State University and relentless diversity champion.
