Publisher surprised

Sen. Lois Kolkhorst surprised Rockport Pilot Editor & Publisher Mike Probst Wednesday, Feb. 5 when she delivered a Senate Proclamation to his office in recognition of his receiving the Frank W. Mayborn Award for Community Leadership from the Texas Press Association. Kolkhorst noted Probst’s tireless efforts to provide real-time news coverage during Hurricane Harvey and capturing the experiences of the residents and local government, and documenting his firsthand accounts of the storm in a book, Harvey Hit Here. She also noted the efforts of the Pilot staff to produce the local newspaper in the weeks immediately following Harvey’s landfall.
