Congratulations to the members of the Houston Association of Black Journalists for another great gala.  It was held Friday night at the Four Seasons in downtown Houston.  The money raised will go to scholarships for students here in our community.  It was a night of recognition, awards, and lots of celebration.  The keynote speaker at the event was ABC News correspondent Pierre Thomas. Some of those honored for their commitment to excellence in journalism were Debra Duncan, D’Artagnan Bebel, Sonny Jiles, Charlie Scott, and others.  The guest list was a who’s who in television, politics, and business in Houston.  The event was emcee’d by FOX 26’s Jose Grinan and KTRK’s Sheron Melton.  Congratulations to HABJ President Mary Benton and Sherea Cary for a great event and all of their staff for the hard work.  It was a night to remember.  Here are some of the pictures the Insite was able to capture!
