A new chapter, but same passion
Country singer Tracy Lawrence said it best in his iconic song "Time marches on."
"The only thing that stays the same is everything changes."
As time marches on, change becomes inevitable. The pandemic has made many people rethink their careers.
There will be a change coming on my horizon, as I am also rethinking my career.
Starting in late August I will be taking the big leap, and pursuing my bachelor's degree in Social Work through Western Kentucky University.
I've always been a story teller and have enjoyed getting to know people. Being involved in the local newspaper has opened my eyes to issues that greatly affect our communities.
While I enjoy writing for our local community newspaper, I feel that I am at a time in my life where I want to take things further. A reporter addresses the issues at play, while a social worker takes the next to provide resources to people affected by those issues. Not only do I want to report on the issues, I want to be part of the solution to those issues. I want to be a voice for people needing help in finding solutions to their struggles.
You may be asking, "what about the paper." For now, I will be continuing my job at the paper while I navigate my social work degree online. Being out of school for more than 10 years, I decided to ease my way back into school and I will be taking just two courses this fall.
I'll still be at the paper, it just may look differently.
I will keep the readers informed with my progress. It has not been an easy change to make, but I look forward to the journey ahead. I thank my colleagues, my family, my friends and most importantly the readers of this community.
While it may be a change, my passion for working with the public remains the same. That passion will never wane.
