Leonora LaPeter Anton - Enterprise Reporter

Enterprise Reporter

As a child, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to be when I grew up, but I found my way to journalism at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I worked at a series of smaller newspapers before coming to the Times, where I was part of a team that won the Pulitzer Prize for exposing violence at Florida's underfunded mental hospitals.
