By Matt Lasley -


The Grayson County News-Gazette would like to announce and welcome its newest member, Joann Kerr, who recently joined the paper as its new Advertising Sales Representative.

A lifelong Grayson County resident, Kerr had her first official day as a full-time News-Gazette staff member on Tuesday, Aug. 18; however, she sold advertisements part-time on straight commission for a number of weeks before then.

“I’m excited to join the team,” Kerr said. “…I like going out and meeting new people.”

A 1990 graduate of Grayson County High School, Joann Kerr is the daughter of Johnny and Judy Haycraft, and is married with two children, Devin Kerr and Kristen Kerr; two step-children, Tabitha Ford and Travis Kerr; and three grandchildren, Ciara and Kierra Willis and Bentley Kerr.

Joann Kerr said she has enjoyed her new job so far, and looks forward to gaining not only her clients’ business, but their friendship, as well.

“I’m there for their benefit,” she said. “They can call anytime.”

For any advertising needs, contact Joann Kerr by phone at 270-259-9622, ext. 2012, or 270-287-7705, or by e-mail at
