Welcome Acworth Patch's New Editor

It's a farewell from Acworth Patch's founding editor Angela Chao, and a welcome for new editor Rodney Thrash.

For the past two years, I've had the honor to serve as your editor for Acworth Patch and meet so many amazing characters in such a wonderful community. This community means so much to me, and it's only appropriate that I write this letter to let you know that this is my last day at Acworth Patch. Starting Monday, Oct. 1, I'll be overseeing Smyrna-Vinings Patch and helping out with South Cobb Patch.

While it's a farewell from me, it's also a welcome to Rodney Thrash, an outstanding colleague of mine who will become your new editor. So please give him a warm welcome, and continue to support Acwoth Patch so that this site we built together as a community can grow even more.

I want to thank everyone of you in the Acworth community for your support, constructive criticism and trust. Without you, Acworth Patch wouldn't be where it is today, and for that, thank you, thank you, thank you!

It has been a pleasure seeing your friendly faces around town and hearing your stories. This is not goodbye, it's see you around! If you ever see me around Acworth (or who knows where), please don't hesitate to stop by and say hi!

Dear Acworth, thank you very much for everything. You'll always hold a special place in my heart.

Would like to meet new editor sometime.

Thanks so much, Jimmy! I'll make sure Rodney has your contact info.

Angela, Thank you for everything you've done at Acworth Patch. You've made such a difference in this community. We'll miss you.

Thank YOU, Angela! The Patch has been so different from any other media outlet I used to getting news from, your reports have been such a breath of fresh air. Hate to see you go, but good luck with your new role.

Angela, I miss you already!

You've done an outstanding job! At least she's still with Patch, and we're not losing her to some other media. I guess I'll actually care more about Smyrna-Vinings and South Cobb from now on? And welcome to Acworth, Rodney!

Can't make it today - would like to meet new editor sometime. We moved to Acworth in May and have been able to find out about our new home through the Patch.

OOps! Meant to say "from the bottom of our North Cobb American Legion Post 304 hearts,"
