I’ll Miss You, Glenview!
Glenview Patch Editor Joanna Schneider, who launched the site in September 2010, is moving to a new position with Patch. Northbrook Patch's talented Stan Golovchuk will take over the reins beginning Sept. 17.
When Glenview Patch launched on Sept. 9, 2010, I was filled with excitement to be joining such a strong, vibrant, involved community.
Two years later, I can look back and say without hesitation that this has been one of the most valuable (and fun!) experiences I've ever had. So, today is a bittersweet one as I announce that this week will be my last as editor.
I’ve seen Glenview Patch grow from an unknown news site to a community cornerstone and that’s something I’m very proud of. Thank you to everyone who has embraced Patch since the beginning—and has joined our community of readers and contributors along the way.
From posting announcements and calendar events, to sharing letters to the editor, commenting on stories and contributing as Local Voices, your engagement has made the site a useful and diverse community-gathering place.
The site will be in great hands with Stan Golovchuk, who will continue as the editor of Northbrook Patch and add Glenview to his arsenal beginning Monday, Sept. 17. Please welcome Stan and reach out to him with any questions, news tips or story ideas.
His e-mail: email@example.com; or give him a ring at 847.626.5618.
The other good news? I won’t be going far—I’m moving to a new position within the Patch family. I’ll be spreading the Patch love across the Midwest, working with around 200 sites in the Central Region (of more than 850 across the country) to help expand their network of active participants and bloggers.
Again, I can’t say thank you enough for sharing your stories and welcoming me into your lives and your community. This site has been my baby and an enormous part of my life the last few years.
From my day-to-day interactions with local business owners, passionate community members and dedicated officials to meeting new faces at the Farmers’ Market, Glenview Summer Festival and a slew of events around town, I’ve enjoyed meeting and collaborating with each and every one of you.
I hope to see you around town very soon.
All the best,
