The La Vernia News welcomes Cheryl Reed

The La Vernia News welcomes Cheryl Reed
NANNETTE KILBEY-SMITH Office Manager Cheryl Reed invites La Vernia residents to visit the new office of The La Vernia News at 112 E. Chihuahua St.

Monday was anything but typical for Cheryl Reed, as she opened the brand-new office of The La Vernia News Jan. 10.

It was the first “official” open day for the new office, with Cheryl as the office manager.

“I’m looking on this as a new challenge,” Cheryl said. “I’m looking forward to the adventure of meeting new people and getting to know the community!”

Cheryl may be new to La Vernia, but she’s not new to the area. Born and raised in Wilson County, she and her husband of 21 years, Derrick, live in Kosciusko. They have a son, Cole, 19, who attends Texas A&M University in College Station, and a daughter, Alison, 16, who is a junior at Poth High School.

Before taking on the challenge of managing the newspaper office, Cheryl owned and operated KarChé Gifts, formerly Heavenly Treasures, in Floresville for eight years.

“I opened KarChé because I saw a need for a shop providing Christian gifts and items,” she said. “It was hard to say goodbye to that, but it was time.”

She thought she might miss the people contact she had while running her own business, but has found, to her delight, “I’ll still get to work with people. I like talking with people!” she said.

In her precious spare time, Cheryl, a Poth High School graduate, enjoys her family and raising miniature Schnauzers with her husband. They attend St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Kosciusko.

Cheryl enjoys establishing systems to help work flow well and make a business function, a perfect fit for her in the newspaper’s new office.

The small-town environment in La Vernia makes this small-town girl feel comfortable in her role.

She invites La Vernia residents and members of the business community to drop by The La Vernia News office at 112 E. Chihuahua St. to meet her.

“I would like you to stop by and tell me who you are,” Cheryl said. “I want to put faces to names!”

The La Vernia News is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, call 830-779-3751 or e-mail Cheryl at reader@thelavernianews.
