Publisher Notes: June/July 2016

ashley2016-e7c840e8It’s true what they say, “time really does fly when you’re having fun!”

The June/July issue marks my one-year anniversary as publisher of Augusta Magazine. It’s been a great journey so far and I’m excited about the future.

I am extremely fortunate to work with an experienced and passionate group of people who also love their work. My job as publisher is to ensure the magazine is a true reflection of our city and its residents.

Augusta continues to evolve as a city. As the city magazine of metropolitan Augusta, we must evolve too. We have seen many changes in the past year that prove Augusta is on the cusp of becoming a major market in the South. It’s an exciting time for our city and our magazine.

Last July, we welcomed home one of our own, Dr. Brooks Keel. In this issue, writer Joe Hotchkiss sat down with the Augusta University president to talk about his homecoming and what he sees for the future of the university.

We also feature a group of individuals who represent the best in their profession. We launched the Top 10 in 10 Young Professionals to Watch program eight years ago in partnership with the Augusta Metro Chamber of Commerce. Through the years, the program has showcased some of the area’s brightest individuals in their respective career fields. This year is no exception.

These rising stars come from a variety of backgrounds, but the common thread is their determination and drive to rise to the top. These individuals give promise to Augusta’s future.

As always, I’m proud to call Augusta home and eager to see what the future holds.
