Last night, eight Patch editors from Northern Virginia charmed fellow attendees at the Society of Professional Journalists Chapter awards dinner in Washington, D.C. Sherell Williams, local editor of Annandale Patch, was sworn in as a board of directors member, one of five women to be inducted that evening - a milestone for the chapter.
Other Patch ladies were in attendance to cheer on Sherell (see photo). Go Patch!
