WJBF News Channel 6's longtime Good Morning Augusta and WJBF News Channel 6 At Noon anchor received an honor from the Augusta West Rotary Club on Thursday.
Mary was presented the 2013 Louis Harris Award, which is presented yearly to a CSRA media member who upholds the highest standard of journalism. Just recently, Mary celebrated her 25th year with WJBF.
This is the 35th year of the award named after Louis Harris (1912-1978), a longtime editor of The Augusta Chronicle and The Augusta Herald. Harris was a renowned journalist who was honored by the Georgia Assembly and the Congressional delegations from Georgia and South Carolina. Harris was also active in the affairs of Fort Gordon and served on the Augusta Aviation Commission.
We at WJBF News Channel 6 are so happy for you, Mary, and you are so deserving of this award!!! Congratulations!
