An employee who has filled many roles at the Lufkin News during her 18-year tenure there earned recognition as Employee of the Month from SNI for April.
Publisher Jenniffer Ricks says Stacy Faison works tirelessly in whatever role she is asked to fill. Faison recently was promoted to news editor.
Managing Editor Jeff Pownall says he couldn’t do his job without Stacy doing hers.
She’s filled a variety of roles here at the paper, from desk helper and reporter to assistant news editor and now, news editor.
Her writing is now limited to opinion pieces, but these are always well-reported and well-reasoned, seasoned with a dash of humor.
“Her efforts on the design aspects of the job have been outstanding,”
Ricks said. “She has worked tirelessly to produce pages while taking on the additional responsibilities of her new position.”
While balancing all that, Faison also has been helping to train a couple of new employees on the desk.
