In 2009, our honored speaker was Helen Thomas, commonly referred to as "The First Lady of the Press."  Ms. Thomas served as White House correspondent, and later as White House bureau chief, for United Press International.  She is considered a trailblazer, breaking through barriers for women reporters while covering every U.S. president since John F. Kennedy.
