To the editor:
The board, staff and volunteers of the Beacon of Hope, Pine Island United Way House wish to thank and send best wishes to Meghan McCoy. As the editor of The Pine Island Eagle, she was enthusiastic, dedicated and professional. Our island is blessed with many charitable organizations, civic associations, multiple churches and a varied business community. Meghan was able to juggle all our requests to be "front page" news with a gracious and caring attitude. She would arrive on time for any event as requested, with a smile and a curiosity to really understand what was happening. Her writing was articulate and accurate and spoke well of our community.
Being the editor can be a thankless job, where your readers and your clients feel neglected or misrepresented. This was never the case with Ms. McCoy. We are very impressed with her professionalism and the residents and businesses of Pine Island are all in agreement that Meghan was a remarkable editor.
Good Luck, we will miss you,
Elsie Stearns, Board President
Betsy Haesemeyer, Executive Director
