Robinson Forum Slated for April
Tim Robinson was a graduate of Dora High School Class of 61 and
he was also a friend of

It's an honor to announce the Timothy Sumner Robinson Forum which
will be held April 11th 2006 at Samford University in Birmingham.
More information to follow.
I am happy to inform you of a great honor for a Dora High School alumnus.
My wife, Carolyn, and I just returned from Washington, DC where we finalized
the first annual Timothy Sumner Robinson Forum. We met with Washington Post
and Samford University people. Samford University in cooperation with the
Washington Post will host the Timothy Sumner Robinson Forum. The Washington
Post will provide the speaker and Samford University will host the event.
The Washington Post participation is to honor Tim's contribution to journalism
and to their newspaper. The first speaker will be Pulitzer Prize winning
columnist, and Tim's colleague, David Broder. In addition, the Washington
Post will sponsor an annual intern fellowship in Tim's name for a Samford
Although not required, we would like to know
those interested in attending because this will help Samford in selecting
the building in which to host the forum.
Our family is grateful to the Washington Post
and Samford University for this honor.
