TOPEKA Bob Johnson, longtime reporter for the Iola Register, was awarded the Gaston Outstanding Mentor Award at Friday nights awards banquet for the Kansas Press Association.
Johnson was noted for his unflagging enthusiasm for journalism throughout his 54 years with the Register.
Bobs favorite saying is Everybody has a story, and if you live in Allen County, Bob has done his best to pry it out of you, noted Susan Lynn, Register publisher, who presented Johnson with the award.
