The last few weeks have been overwhelming to the surprise of some people. And for others, an even bigger shock to hear the newspaper is losing a multimedia journalist this week.
For the past four weeks I’ve been thanking everyone for their support over the past six years stemming from my early years as an assignment reporter and transitioning to an editor. The last two years have been spent as sports editor for the Northumberland Echo, Northern Neck and Westmoreland News.
It has been a challenge over the years, but I’m thankful to have been carried by a higher power.
I’m not a perfect writer, and didn’t think so when I started in the summer of 2007. All I had was a college degree and a desire to improve when selected by my first editor, Jan Ohrmundt-Demyen.
