Sun Herald Wins A Prestigious Pulitzer

Our congratulations go out to the Sun Herald Newspaper. The Sun-Herald has won the Pulitzer Prize for public service.  Staff members received the good news just before two this afternoon. The staff was given the prestigious award for its coverage of Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath.

The Gulfport-based paper never missed a day of publication during the storm. Like tens of thousands of Mississippi Gulf Coast residents, many of the Sun Herald's 250 employees lost homes in the storm, but they continued to do their jobs.
