Public relations experts say the best way to dispel a rumor is to address it head on. So, it's time I address one that’s been floating around by saying yes, it’s true.
After almost 18-years with the Star-Telegram - come Feb. 28 - I will be leaving.
I won't use this space to recap my history over the years, positions I've worked, or accolades I've received. I'd rather use this space to say thank you. Even now, as I type on this keyboard, my eyes fill with tears when I think of the many people who have helped me along my journey. I owe you such a debt of gratitude!
Parker County is a wonderful place, and even though I made a daily commute from Arlington, you welcomed me as one of your own.
As the newspaper industry began to transition over the years, and staff greatly reduced, you saw me struggle. Instead of grinding me underfoot, you lifted me up and helped me. If I couldn't make it to a photo shoot, you sent me a picture. If I couldn't make it to an interview because of having to be at a different location, you let me call you or email you questions.
There are so many people to thank, I won't attempt to list them because if I left anyone out, I would feel terrible.
Come March 12, I will assume the role as publisher of the San Marcos Daily Record. I look forward to this new chapter in my life. But know this. I sincerely thank you for all you have done for my family and me. May God bless the people of Parker County.
