The Big Lake Wildcat Goes Back-to-Back as Texas' Best Small Weekly Newspaper
The Big Lake Wildcat was honored by its peers Saturday during the Texas Press Association’s annual leadership retreat held at the La Torretta Lake Resort on Lake Conroe north of Houston.
The Wildcat, in the Small Weeklies circulation division, brought home the Sweepstakes Award, the top prize in the contest.
It is the second year in a row for the newspaper to win the award, and the third time in four years.
J.L. Mankin, editor of the Big Lake Wildcat, and his father Randy Mankin, publisher of the Wildcat, Eldorado Success and Devil's River News, were on hand to receive the honor.
