THE BIG FRIDAY NIGHT EVENT!
Houston city council member Jarvis Johson is kicking off a campaign that will bring attention to drug use around the city. He’s also hoping to get a commitment from young people in district B that they won’t do drugs. He held a press conference Friday on the steps of city hall with dozens of students from several high schools in his district. The students say drugs have become a major problem in their schools and community. Johnson brought together several community leaders including Derrick Muhammad to emphasize their commitment to making a difference in the young people’s lives. If you need more information on this effort contact the councilman’s office on how you can get involved!
BYRON DOESN’T NEED A REPORTER SLOWING HIM DOWN!
Byron Nichols is The Insite photographer of the week. Byron is a long time employee of KPRC TV 2. He is one of those hard working photo-journalists an assignments editor can send out to a story without a reporter because he will ask any and all questions needed to tell the story and get to the truth. He’s frequently seen out in the field with Mary Benton, Carl Willis, Kym Alvarado Booth and a long list of KPRC reporters. Byron is also married to Houston television personality Darian Ward. And Byron has a book out on the market so make sure you check out his website. I also here he’s pretty good when it comes to trail rides and horseback riding. Thanks Byron for stopping by The Insite…By the way, he is the first photojournalist picked by a consensus of The Insite committee which consists of The Insite and Torrey ‘T-Dub’ Walker.
THE GALA WITH A TRUE PURPOSE – SENDING YOUNG PEOPLE TO COLLEGE!
The Houston Association of Black Journalist Gala was held at the Hilton Post Oak Friday night. The Insite attended the event that benefits students who are hoping to become journalist. The event was very successful with the house being packed with members of the media as well as community leaders and others. The sad part about this is the Insite left the Insite-Cam at home. Can you believe that. But Insite contributing photographer/blogger – Accounting Guru Bob Martin came to the rescue and took these photos for me. Also Jule ‘The Socialite’ Grayum loaned The Insite a camera but I don’t have a cord to down load the photos so expect those pics late Saturday or Sunday. In the meantime, here are some familiar faces including Mary Benton, Darian Ward, The Insite, Angela Willaims, Len Cannon, Jerome Gray, Melanie Lawson, Dartangnan Bebel, Patrick Trahan, Mayor Bill White, Yolanda Adams, Wendell Edwards, Carl ‘The New Hammer’ Davis, Serbino Walker, Ronald Green and the list just goes on!
