On October 29, the Grytte student newspaper staff enjoyed a luncheon in the Cook Room with alumnus David A. Callaway ’82, editor-in-chief of USA Today. Prior to starting at USA Today in 2012, Mr. Callaway was editor-in-chief of MarketWatch; before that, he worked at Bloomberg News and The Boston Herald. In 2012, Browning honored both Mr. Callaway and his brother, John P. Callaway ’84, with the Charles W. Cook '38 Alumnus Achievement Award, the Alumni Association’s highest distinction.
Grytte advisor Jeremy Katz '04 reports, "Mr. Callaway offered a number of interesting anecdotes and 'words of wisdom' to the Grytte staff, and they, in turn, asked many intelligent questions of him. He shared his experience as a reporter and editor, gave insight on the evolution of journalism and offered invaluable advice to the next generation of budding journalists."
Form III student George Grimbilas '18 added: "The meeting was inspiring because Mr. Callaway was a member of the Grytte staff when he was a student at Browning. The Grytte staff is very thankful that Mr. Callaway took valuable time from his day to come and speak with us about his career."
