Goals of excellence

Coloring map

An initial goal set by Editor Bob Terry was to make sure every Alabama Baptist association was featured in the paper at least annually. The goal soon moved from one time a year to two times a year and has been achieved every year of his tenure. Staff members color in a map of the associations to track coverage. The Alabama Baptist file photo
