On behalf of the National Newspaper Publishers Association Board of Directors and our entire NNPA membership across the nation, we pause sadly to express our sincerest condolences and sympathy to the family of William “Bill” Mays. At the age of 69, William G. Mays was the publisher of the Indianapolis Recorder newspaper and the founder and CEO of Mays Chemical Company. Bill Mays was an outstanding and trailblazing entrepreneur in Indiana and was recognized nationally as a visionary and innovator. The Indianapolis Recorder continues to uplift the legacy of excellence and service that characterized the leadership of Mays. Our prayers are with the Mays’ family. May the grace and love of God sustain all through this period of bereavement.
Dr. Benjamin F. Chavis, Jr. – President and CEO
