Sun announces new general manager
Last week the Sun named Rachel Woods as its new general manager. Woods has been with the newspaper since 2013 most recently serving as the business manager.
“I am excited to accept this new level of responsibility for the newspaper and the staff and I will be working hard to publish the best community newspaper possible,” Woods said.
Woods is a 2007 graduate of New Boston High School, and studied journalism at Texarkana College.
Woods enjoys serving in the adult choir program at First Baptist Church, Atlanta. She also serves as fourth grade choir director for the children’s program at First Baptist Church, and is currently on the Piney Woods Youth Soccer League board of directors as bookkeeper.
Woods is married to Ben Woods, who is the editor of the Cass County Sun in Linden. They have three children, Evan, 8, Elijah, 5 and Elle, 3. Woods and her family have lived in Cass County since 2008.
“I encourage readers to offer story ideas, letters to the editor or even concerns,” said Woods. I hope to be as accessible as possible to readers, advertisers and residents.”
Woods will serve in the same capacity for the Atlanta Citizens Journal as well.
