The LaGrange City Council Tuesday proclaimed today as Jennifer Shrader Day in honor of LaGrange Daily News reporter Jennifer Shrader for her many years covering LaGrange government and community events. Shrader’s last day at the Daily News will be Nov. 6, as she has accepted the position of managing editor at the Kinston, N.C., Free Press. Council honored Shrader with a plaque and honorary proclamation.
“Jennifer has been a model of what we need and expect from the press in our community,” said LaGrange Mayor Jeff Lukken. “She did LaGrange and the LaGrange Daily News proud with her dedication to fair coverage of the issues.”
