Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings wears many hats. He's a "man's man," a pizza lover, a terrible actor, the titular head of a major American city.
He is also, you might be surprised to learn, a distinguished journalist. So says the University of North Texas' Mayborn School of Journalism. It has named him to the "C.E. Shuford Hall of Honor," where his name will hang alongside local reporting legends like Bill Moyers, Bert Shipp (father of Brett), John McCaa, and the Star-Telegram's Bob Ray Sanders, among other industry veterans with "lifetime achievement and distinguished contributions to the journalism profession."
