With outgoing president Bobbie Jo Buel characterizing Otis L. Sanford as an energetic, “sweetheart of a guy,”  the editor of the Memphis Commercial Appeal was confirmed as the new APME president.

Sanford discussed his vision of hope and assured the audience that as president he would work tirelessly and fervently for the APME over the next year.

“We have the momentum, we have the commitment, we have the talent,” he said.
