The following announcement is bittersweet: I’m leaving Matthews-Mint Hill Weekly.
After our Aug. 2 issue hits the stands and your driveway I’ll be stepping down as editor.
But I won’t be going far.
I’ve joined the Matthews-based company JAJ Nonprofit Resource whose mission is a perfect match with my other passion: helping nonprofits! While my colleagues help these agencies with bookkeeping, administrative work and grant writing, I’ll be tackling communications, marketing and fundraising.
I want to thank you, our readers, for the privilege of serving you.
Over the past five years you’ve allowed me to inform and entertain you through the written word. We’ve shared in your joys and your sorrows. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed our conversations – both in person and through countless Letters to the Editor.
It was through this job that I truly was able to nurture my love for our nonprofit community. Thank you.
I’ll stick around, on a part-time basis, until a new editor is hired and trained by yours truly. Among all the job requirements there’s one that stands above the rest: the new editor must love the Matthews-Mint Hill community as much as I do.
