In her first two assignments, The Oconee Enterprise’s newest reporter, Julia Fechter, captured the very spirit of Oconee. The Oconee Veterans Foundation Memorial Day observance and the upcoming First Saturday showcase a community with a tremendous heart and welcoming arms. 

These are the kinds of stories that connect people or empower citizens to work toward a common purpose. 

“As a journalist, I have really enjoyed telling people’s stories,” said Fechter.  “I want readers of my articles to learn more about their communities. … particularly others who have different backgrounds or experiences than them.
