By: Lt. Colonel Allen Satterlee
Lt. Colonel Mark Israel, Program Secretary for the USA Southern Territory, is pleased to announce that Ms. Kristin Mudge, a soldier of the Gwinnett County Corps, will be assuming the position as editor of The Southern Spirit effective August 1. She follows Lt. Colonel Allen Satterlee who will be assuming other duties at THQ effective that same date.
Ms. Mudge comes to the position well qualified, having worked in television news as a writer and producer; as part of the team in the Texas Division; and as a freelance video producer, photographer, and web designer. She holds a Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in Media Communications from Asbury University. “With Kristin’s deep background in electronic media, we are hoping to better bridge what we do in print to other social media and other areas,“ Lt. Colonel Israel said, “We are aware that news and information has to be presented and formatted on multiple platforms to be effective in the current age. We believe that Kristin and other members of the team will be able to help us reach even more people than we currently do.”
The Southern Spirit marks its fortieth year of publication this year. It was published without break until a hiatus due to the pandemic that lasted from February 2020 until April 2022 when it resumed publication. It kept information flowing during that gap through Southern Spirit Online under the leadership of Brad Rowland, who continues with the print and electronic versions.
