Parting is such sweet sorrow

SAN ANTONIO - For the last five years, as San Antonio editor for Construction News, I have written stories and attended events that run the gamut across the construction industry. But now I must announce that I am moving on to the next phase of my career.







    This issue contains the last stories to bear my initials at their end, and like countless others before them, they are stories I feel fortunate and enriched for having been able to tell. It has been a pleasure getting to know and work with the members of San Antonio’s strong, tight-knit, and multi-faceted construction community.
    When I first started at Construction News, I knew very little about construction or how the local industry is driven by the same sense of community that defines the Alamo City itself. In the process of learning about you, you welcomed me and made me feel like part of the family.
    Over the years, I’ve written about your companies, highlighted you and your hobbies, celebrated your milestones and victories, photographed you accepting awards or just having fun, visited your offices and jobsites, met your families, and enjoyed your barbecue as well as other cook-off concoctions.
    My five years doing this job have been fulfilling and rewarding because of you and everything you do in the industry and in our community. And though I will not be editor of your local industry paper any longer, I hope to see you around and hear from you often!
    To all of you who have spent time with me on the phone, via email, in your offices, in the field, or at events, thank you for letting me be a part of your journey. I am grateful that you have been a part of mine.

Sincerely and with high regards,

Mary Hazlett
