I have to say that I’m pretty involved in the Charlotte community and I really enjoy it. One of the many organizations I’m a member of is the Junior League of Charlotte, a volunteer organization for women.
When I first joined the league I had a community placement where I would spend time with at risk youth but 4 years ago that changed when I decided to have an in-league placement writing for the magazine.
As many of you know I’m journalist and spent 10-years producing television newscasts – so this placement is right up my alley.
The magazine is called The CRIER and we put out 4 issues a year and I recently found out that one of my stories is the cover article for the spring issue! What’s even better is that I wrote about a friend of mine who I met hiking!
A few members of the The CRIER staff had a happy hour/dinner last night to look over the proof of the magazine and here are a few pictures of all of us along with a shot of what the cover will look like.
BTW – the article talks about how Carol used her Junior League experience to change careers and become a director of a well-known non-profit here in town, Crisis Assistance Ministries.
