Publisher Notes: June/July 2018

 

Three years. I celebrate my third anniversary as publisher of Augusta magazine with this issue. When I took the reigns as publisher, I will admit to being less than confident in my ability to guide this publication.  I felt like a change was needed, but I wasn’t sure that the readers would embrace it. I now know I was wrong.

I would like to take a moment to thank you, our readers, for sticking with us. Not only, did we change the aesthetics of the magazine, but we’ve changed the tone as well. We’re a little more progressive, but that is not simply due to my desires and convictions. It’s more of a reflection on our city and its residents. The landscape of the area is changing, and the changes are not just in the construction of new buildings and renovations, but in our people.

The June/July issue affords us an opportunity to highlight the next great group of Augustans – poised to lead us into the future. A colloboration between our magazine and the Augusta Metro Chamber of Commerce, now celebrating our 10th year, the Top 10 in 10 Young Professionals to Watch program was designed to feature the next generation of leaders. These young professionals are determined to make their mark, not only in their chosen profession, but in the Augusta area. They are truly invested in the community.

In this issue we also take a look back at past honorees! As for our current Top 10, we would love for you to  join us on June 7 at the annual luncheon. Tickets are available by calling the chamber at 706.821.1300. We hope to see you there!

 Like many of you, I have been praying that life would have returned to normal by now. Well, at least the way life looked before Covid. As I write this column, I feel as if we are still living in some sort of alternate reality. Masks and social-distancing have become...

The current state of affairs in our country saddens me. I was raised to love and respect everyone. A person’s skin tone was just that, their skin tone. It has nothing to do with who they are as a person. As humans, we all have the same organs, our blood is red and we...
