"We are very excited to now have on staff an individual with the credentials of covering education that Emily has," Reporter-News Editor Barton Cromeens said. "We believe she will provide our readers with an outstanding look into education in Abilene and the Big Country."
Peters most recently has returned from West Africa, where she traveled extensively and produced coverage of mission work for Christian Web sites, magazines and videos.
"After three years overseas, I'm looking forward to living back in Texas, where you can't beat the Mexican food and people appreciate the role of the community newspaper," Peters said.
