12th Awards: Mike Pigott wins for Community Cheerleader posthumously
February 3, 2016
Mike Pigott loved Nashville and he loved journalism.
From the first day he arrived in this town some 40 years ago, he made it a point to understand this city and its people. And he committed himself to making it a better place to live and work every day.
From his days as a reporter, I know Mike appreciated the work being done at 12th and Broad. He believed journalists like you showed the heart and soul of a city.
And I know he was immensely proud of what Nashville has become and the role he played in that transition. From bringing an NFL franchise here, to his work on the arena, to his work with his church and community organizations like Hands On Nashville and Safe Haven.
Our city had no bigger booster. That you would recognize him for his efforts is an honor for which I and my family are forever grateful.
