From the National Cartoonist Society website:
On January 23, the National Cartoonists Society awarded Mell Lazarus, cartoonist of the long-running comic strip Momma, with the NCS Medal of Honor in Los Angeles, California.
The Medal of Honor was created in 2015 to honor past Reuben Award winners with recognition for their lifetime contributions to the cartooning profession. It was first bestowed upon MAD Magazine cartoonist Mort Drucker at the annual Reuben Awards in Washington D.C. last year.
