May 17, 2012: Knoxville, TN - The Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy at the University of Tennessee honored Charlie Daniel, the News Sentinel's longtime editorial cartoonist, at a luncheon sponsored by Sen. Baker and his wife, Nancy Kassenbaum Baker, former U.S. senator from Kansas.
Senator Howard Baker commends Charlie Daniel on his cartooning skills ("I've been both the victim and beneficiary") in this video:

Offering tributes to Daniel were Baker; Ginny Weatherstone, head of the Volunteer Ministry Center, where Daniel has long been a board member and volunteer; News Sentinel columnist Sam Venable; and Marshall Ramsey, editorial cartoonist for the Jackson Clarion-Ledger, who as a student at UT in the 1990s was coached and encouraged by Daniel.
