The new News Editor for the Winn Parish Enterprise, Tiffany Burke, spoke to the Kiwanis After Hours meeting, Monday, January 20, 2020. She graduated from Calvin in 2011 and graduated from Northwestern with a degree in Education. It was a logical choice and scholarships were available. She taught at Winnfield Senior High and Calvin for a few years. Then she went on a mission trip to New York and after her second mission trip she quit her teaching job. She has been on mission trips to New York, Brazil, Hawaii, Nepal, France and California. She started at the Enterprise on Halloween day. She originally called to apply for the sales job and ended up with the news editor job.
Ms. Burke is all about making a difference in your world. She believes you have to transfer your passion to make a difference. There are a lot of civic clubs in our town and they are about making a difference. She said authenticity sells.
Burke said we are better and stronger together. Young people and older people should be working together. Most young people’s eyes are not open to the needs around them. Young people have a lot to learn and older people have learned a lot. Therefore it would be beneficial for them to work together. A quote she used said “If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together”. The year 2020 should be a year of unity. We need to connect with others so that we can go far.
Ms. Burke has a lot of energy and enthusiasm for life and the Kiwanis club wishes her well at the Enterprise.
