June 11, 2015
The Craig Daily Press will say goodbye to a dedicated employee Friday — Amy Fontenot.
Amy has worked hard for the newspaper for seven years, helping to boost business and customer service at the Daily Press.
"We want to recognize the dedication Amy Fontenot has given to the Craig Daily Press/The Print Shop and our community over the past seven-plus years," said Daily Press Publisher Renee Campbell. "Amy has been a tireless employee at any task and assumed extra roles over her tenure, working as the manager of the circulation department, office manager, creative services and the Print Shop. We will miss the day-to-day interaction with Amy — she has been an indispensable part of our team — but we are excited about what her future holds."
Amy is leaving the newspaper to stay home with her two daughters and to spend more time with her husband, Kurt Fontenot.
"I most look forward to investing in the future of my children," Amy said.
She feels that the newspaper has done a great job over the years.

"It has been an honor and a privilege to work at the Craig Daily Press for the last seven years. It gave me the opportunity to be a part of creating a sense of community for Craig — because that is really what I feel like our paper does, it tells a local story that brings people together — sometimes to take a stand and fight, sometimes to mourn together, sometimes to cheer together, sometimes to debate each other but always to engage us hopefully in a way that makes our community stronger," Amy said. "I am thankful to have had the opportunity to be a part of that."
Gary Cole will take over for Amy. Gary was promoted to circulation/pressman/building manager.
"I'm excited that Gary is taking over the reins of the circulation department," she said. "He's been an intricate part of the team for many years."
Amy's hard work is appreciated by the newspaper.
"Thank you Amy. You will be missed by all of us," Renee said.
