ADC to Honor Helen Thomas at Convention and Inaugurate Journalism Scholarship





More News...

Since the Kennedy Administration in the early 1960s many policies and initiatives have changed from President to President, but one thing has been consistent; the watchful eye of Arab-American Journalist Helen Thomas who broke all barriers for female journalists. As a central figure in the White House Press corps, and the current Dean, Helen Thomas has always asked tough questions. Even when much of the media establishment failed to question the evidence that led us into war in Iraq, Helen Thomas was among the few who maintained journalistic integrity and responsibility by putting tough questions before the White House.

Now, questioning her 10th President, Helen Thomas continues to be a role model for young journalists throughout this country. At this year's National Convention, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee will inaugurate a journalism scholarship in Helen Thomas' name to be awarded to outstanding college students majoring in journalism. Helen Thomas will address the convention and more details about the scholarship application will be available soon.
