The Skanner founders Bernie and Bobbie Foster, along with six other prominent African American Portlanders, are being honored this month in the Rose Garden by The Portland Trail Blazers and the Bridge Builders youth organization.

 

The Fosters were joined by Phil Walden (honored on Feb. 1), Kelci Rae Flowers and Olaremi Sobomehin (Feb. 22), Shaler Halimon (Feb. 24), and Dr. Larry Griggs and Lavern Woods (Feb. 26.). The Fosters were honored in the Rose Garden on Feb. 3.

The Fosters, a local husband-wife team, founded the Skanner News Group in 1975. They publish two weekly newspapers, the Portland and Seattle editions of The Skanner. For the past 30 years, Bernie has led as president and Bobbie has significantly contributed as the publication's executive editor.
