POULSBO The North Kitsap Herald is pleased to announce the addition of three new employees to its fold.
On the advertising side of the house, Ann Manning is the new Kingston area marketing representative, and Grace Ramiscal is the new creative consultant. Jennifer Morris was named the new Poulsbo beat reporter to complete the Heralds editorial staff.
The three replace Patti Walden, Jody Henning and Charles Melton, who all previously served in those positions.
Im very pleased with the quality of each of our new employees, Herald publisher Donna Etchey said. They are all highly qualified and I look forward to great things from each of them.
The personnel moves arent a reflection of bad times at the Herald, but are a sign of the opportunities that come from being associated not only with the newspaper, but Sound Publishing as well, Etchey said.
Im excited to see our employees have opportunities to advance ,and I wish them well, she said. Well miss them, but Im sure our new employees will fill the void.
For Morris, her arrival in Little Norway earlier this week after spending most of her life in Spokane has been a pleasant experience.
This community has been as friendly and charming as anyone could imagine, and I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know its citizens, she said. From the employees at city hall to the wonderful members of the Lions Club, I have felt a very warm reception and look forward to getting to know the town even more.
As a recent graduate from Whitworth College in Spokane, Morris said the Herald presented the perfect opportunity for life beyond the Spokane area.
I have wanderlust, Ill admit, so graduating from college was the perfect moment for me to find a new place to explore, she said. The beauty of this area attracted me like it has so many. When I heard about the job at the Herald, it sounded perfect.
As for what her future holds, Morris said she knows one thing wont change.
I have no idea where Ill be 10 years down the road, except that Ill have pen and paper in hand, she said. Its the journey between here and there that Im excited for.
