USF honors Times' Tash

 Paul Tash's thank you speech.   "I'd like to thank you for this wonderful award and I am I am deeply honored to receive it. But the credit for any of the contributions that I may have made goes primarily to the organization that I have attached myself to nearly four decades ago, The Tampa Bay Times. And most of what I have done is to follow the course charted by my predecessors including Mr. Nelson Pointer. Who believed so deeply in journalism and public education as foundations for the community. Thank you very much for this outstanding honor and to all graduates that are here this evening may you be as lucky in your own careers as I have been, congratulations.
