Hall joins Chronicle staff

The Crossroads Chronicle is pleased to announce the addition of Brittany Hall to the company team. The 27-year-old reported for her first day Monday, November 8, and is expected to be a major contributor in many ways.

Although a newcomer to the journalism field, Hall is enthusiastic and brings a bit of relative experience to the table.

She is a product of Swainsboro High School’s Class of 2013. After high school, she attended Athens Technical College as well as Savannah Technical College. In recent years, she has worked as a clothing and graphic designer for Trenz, a Loganville company, and as a computer aided drafter for local Donaldson Surveys.

Her involvement with The Chronicle will likely have her wear many hats. She has the creativity to work in graphic arts and pen stories. Additionally, she will cover the breaking news beat and, effective immediately, man The Chronicle’s web presence.

“I realized at a very young age there is power in words. I remember being a 7-year-old, fighting sleep on a school night just to get another chapter in ‘Because of Winn Dixie’ and being a teenager, too obsessed and related to Holden Caulfield to not check-out ‘The Catcher In The Rye’ from the SHS library again for the 30th time my freshman year. I recall taking my mom’s poetry book from the shelf and studying each line, wanting so badly to never experience but comprehend all the troubles those poets must have known, for their one-liners to hold so much beauty and depth behind them,” Hall explained. “Now, as an adult, I still find comfort in the arts. To express and educate myself is an outlet for me. Literature is magic that helped shape me into the person that I am and who I am becoming, so if I’m given the chance to run with it, that’s exactly what I’m going to do.”

She and her significant other, Stephen “Kyle” Williams have one son, 7-year-old Nolan. Her parents are Penny Porcel, formerly of Modoc, and Chris (Katie) Hall of Canoochee. In her free time, Hall enjoys perfecting her photography skills, listening to true crime podcasts, reading fiction novels, studying local history, traveling, watching nostalgic movies, and spending time with family.
