DARREL RILEY Oh where to begin? After San Angelo Central High School, I attended Angelo State University in San Angelo, Texas. In 1967, I began my first career choice with Lone Star Gas Company. I achieved almost 28 years with Lone Star Gas. Carolyn and I later relocated to seven different areas. During this period, I had various supervisory and management positions after completing my management courses with Texas A&I University in Kingsville, Texas. I started my second career choice with the Killeen Daily Herald in January 1994. I’ve had several different positions with the Herald and established numerous long lasting relationships with the people here in Central Texas. I’ve always made an effort to support the cities in which we lived. I have been fortunate to serve with numerous organizations including Metroplex Foundation Board (Chairman), Armed Services YMCA (Chairman), Leadership Killeen (Chairman), Greater Killeen Chamber of Commerce (Vice President/Director/Ambassador), Local Heroes, Inc. (Vice President), Greater Killeen Free Clinic (Director), Killeen Rotary Club (Director/President Elect), Ft. Hood Area United Way (Director), Industrial Foundation (Director) as well as Heart O’ Texas Lions Club-Waco (President). I suppose two of my proudest accomplishments are receiving the Sam Walton Business Leader Award (June 1997) and the Texas Newspapers Advertising Managers Association (TNAMA) “Account Executive of the Year” (May 1998). (Brag rights: Only employee to receive this award in the history of Frank Mayborn Enterprises.) I really appreciate the opportunities afforded me by the Killeen Daily Herald. I continue to enjoy my friendships and relationships with my customers and I hope they will only increase in numbers.

Anthony Edwards Media Account Representative Killeen Daily Herald I have been employed at the Killeen Daily Herald for over twenty-five years now. Obviously I have witnessed many changes throughout the years, to include three general managers, three business managers, several advertising directors, a plethora of classified managers, countless sales representatives and a slew of other departmental employees. The nature of the business, as well as my functionality, has also changed throughout the years. When I first arrived at the Killeen Daily Herald in 1989, I was informed by co-workers who preceded me that, the current building had superseded the downtown location not many years prior. Other than the burnt-orange trim around the advertising, business and circulation departments, little has changed cosmetically about the building; even the carpet remains the same. My job title and functionality then was that of an Inside Classified Sales Representative. The focus of my job at that time was Classified “line ads” and “display ads” and the occasional special section; the most important one at that time for the Classified Department was the annual Roll of Honor. There were three of us (Classified Sales Reps.) who sat at desks contiguous to the front counter. There were about four Outside Classified Sales Reps. and probably four Outside Retail Sales Reps. at that time. Back then, the internet was just coming of age and digital technology would soon make many things obsolete. Gone would be the days of cut and paste graphics and pagination. I too would have to adapt to the changing technology and the new and diversified demands placed upon the newly designated “Media Sales Representative”. After a brief stint in 2002 as a Recruitment Account Representative, these compartmentalized specialist designations would gradually evolved into the all encompassing “Media Sales Representative”. The Media Sales Representative would be responsible for selling a myriad of products to include: print advertising products such as the Killeen Daily Herald, the Ft. Hood Herald, the Cove Herald, the Harker Heights Herald; specialty magazines like Homefinder, Tex Appeal, Health & Fitness, etc.; a variety of annual special pages and special sections to include Newcomers Guide and Progress Edition; then there’s commercial print products such as flyers, inserts and vinyl banners; and of course the digital advertising products from online banner ads to digital images of print ads and more. Through it all, I’m still learning and still developing my craft and more importantly my character.
