Stacie D. Cofield has been hired as the composer for The Atmore Advance. She is a native of Uriah and currently lives in Atmore.
Cofield is a 2002 graduate of J.U. Blacksher High School where she was awarded two college scholarships and the DAR award.
Cofield graduated from Faulkner State Community College in December of 2005 with a degree in applied science in commercial art and computer graphics. She received the Music Festival award and OSHA poster award while attending there.
"I am glad that I was able to find a job in the area that will enable me to apply the skills I learned in college," Cofield said. "I am also looking forward to being a part of The Atmore Advance."
Cofield comes to the "Advance" after working at Winn-Dixie for the past two years. In her free time she enjoys reading, drawing and painting.
Atmore Newspapers, Inc. publisher Adam Prestridge believes that Cofield will be an instrumental part of the Advance's close-knit team.
"Stacie is real talented and will be able to contribute greatly to the overall look of the paper," Prestridge said. "She has jumped in feet first and taken on the challenges her role at the Advance requires. I'm confident that she will succeed here."
Cofield is the daughter of Susan Cofield of Atmore and Richard Cofield of Monroeville. Her first day on the job was March 30.
