As publisher and editor of The Greenville Standard, there is much thanks to give to our dedicated staff that provide readers with detailed, relevant and reliable information.
All of the awards collected this year would not have been possible without their combined effort.
Locally owned and community committed is just not a catchy phrase. It is the guiding philosophy by which The Greenville Standard commits to the citizens of Butler and surrounding counties.
Thank you for your readership; with you, we can build a better paper and community.
