FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
SENATOBIA, MS (09/18/2017) Joanna M. Frederick, owner and creative director of Hills & Harvest magazine, is pleased to announce that Erin Williams Hill will step in as the magazine's interim publisher after the release of the October 2017 issue.
Hill, a graduate of Mississippi State University and a native of Natchez, Miss., has previously worked for a magazine. Hill is also an entrepreneur and involved within her community. She is a graduate of Cathedral High School. Hill and her husband, John Allen, and their three sons, live in Hernando, Miss.
Frederick is excited about the talents and dedication that Hill will bring to Hills & Harvest.
"Erin is creative, smart, and trustworthy. I'm confident she will do a great job. The other owners and I will meet with Erin and team members after the release of the November-December 2017 issue to discuss plans for 2018,” Frederick said.
Hills & Harvest started in July of 2016. Recently, in February, the Hills & Harvest team received the Senatobia Main Street 2017 Star Award for Best New Venture.
“The purpose for Hills & Harvest is to share stories from our local and regional communities especially the agriculture community. We want to give a voice to the people that make up North Mississippi and promote their lifestyle and culture. Hard-working, honest, and talented people that care for each other and their hometowns. I know Erin and the H&H family will continue to channel this purpose in every issue,” Frederick said.
Frederick, a University of Mississippi School of Law alumna, recently accepted a job opportunity with a civil claims and litigation law firm in Denver, Co. She will remain as one of the owners and creative advisors of Hills & Harvest.
Frederick added, “I want to take this time to give credit to the Ag Community for literally keeping us alive. Without them, food on our tables would not exist. I thank them for giving Hills & Harvest the opportunity to celebrate them in our issues. I will sincerely miss Northwest Mississippi and the relationships I have made with those in the community."
