letter from the editor MY NAME IS KATE BUSH, AND I AM A RECENT TRANSPLANT FROM AUSTIN, TEXAS HOPING TO MAKE MY MARK IN WONDERFUL RICHMOND HILL, GEORGIA . I graduated with a BFA in writing from the Savannah College of Art and Design and, six months later, am overseeing my first issue at this publication. As a 22-year-old woman entering the professional world, I found it important (for both myself and Reflections’ readers) to acquaint myself with the people in this community who are trying to do the same thing as I am: matter. How do you create your legacy? Where do you start? At this issue’s close, these are my findings: In a community as close-knit as ours (yes, ours!), it’s easy to spot those who are actively working to make a difference. Whether they’re just beginning to climb the ladder or have already reached the top, entrepreneurs are, in my opinion, the foundation on which Richmond Hill’s economy, community, and integrity is built upon. In this issue, we’ve conversed with those who have been developing their impact for years–John Womble, Nikki Grandy, Ben and Susie MacMillan–and compared them to the budding young professionals of our time–Cameron Styer, Josh Galbreath, Trip Addison. How has the path to success evolved? You’ll find that, despite any changes you might note, the constant is dedication. Dedication, as narrated here, walks hand-in-hand with success down life’s winding path. In Richmond Hill, we’ve found that path highly trafficked. We hope their stories resonate and, at the very least, insipire you to find a little entrepreneurial spirit of your own. Kate Bush EDITOR Re f 15
