Very little of my work has ever been in my home county, but thanks to Cathy McCollom and RiverWise, I recently had the chance to write a story on some of the people who are affecting change in Beaver Falls. I grew up across the river in New Brighton in the 1980s and 1990s. The Beaver Falls I got to know this past year is not the same community I knew (or thought I knew) back then.

I’m so excited for what is happening in Beaver Falls thanks to some of the people featured here. Here’s the link to a story I’m really proud of writing. What makes me even more proud? One of those featured said to me, “Thanks for telling our story with care.”

Note: this displays best on a computer.
