Future Magazine Editors?
The Lynchburg Living staff participated in the annual college and career day for Campbell County Public Schools on March 28. Editor Shelley Basinger and Account Executive Mike Lewis talked to high school students about the print journalism field and the steps they need to take. Aspiring journalists are welcome to email Shelley anytime at!

A Special Feeling
We work hard to make our recognition events memorable—and love to hear that it pays off. During our Top Teachers reception on March 3, the individuals who nominated each of the top 10 teachers were invited to attend and speak. Tomahawk Elementary School teacher Cheryl Wilder, who was nominated by a former student, emailed editor Shelley Basinger: “I want to thank you as everything was so nice today. I really felt special… it was a surprise to find out who nominated me making it extra special. Fun memories thanks to you!” Be sure to check out our photo recap on the following page!
