Sherrill reflects on 25 years at Standard
Placeholder Image
I’ve been asked to sit down and write out a few thoughts to mark my silver anniversary here at the Southern Standard – a plateau, I’m told, that has rarely been achieved in our newsroom.I began as crime and courts writer on March 4, 1990. I remember it vividly because it was one of the last times I wore a tie to work. It was also on that day, while trying to be the “cool kid” in the newsroom I was thrown from my chair, bucked out like I was riding a bucking bronco and spilled onto the floor before the entire staff.
