The Frank W. Mayborn Humanitarian Award was established in 1991 to honor the memory of Central Texas communications pioneer Frank W. Mayborn by recognizing civic and/or humanitarian service at its highest level in the area of Texas he made his home for nearly 60 years.
At the time of his death in 1987, Mayborn was editor and publisher of the Temple Daily Telegram and of the Killeen Daily Herald which jointly sponsor the award.
