Today marks four years since we printed our first issue as the new owners of the Martensville Messenger! We are beyond thrilled to be heading into our 5th year and cannot wait to see what the future has in store. Thank you to everyone that has supported us in our journey. Each day is a new adventure and we would not be able to do any of this without our readers, advertisers, families and staff! Looking back at our first issue on September 25, 2014, we still feel the same excitement and pride each week that we did that day and hope that we have many more years ahead of us!
Martensville Messenger Celebrates Fourth Anniversary
Shanine Sealey has always had a passion for reading and writing. Growing up with a librarian for a mother, and working in a library as her first job at age 15, that passion continued to grow. After moving to Martensville in 2006 and working at the StarPhoenix for several years, Shanine was given the opportunity to join the team at the Martensville Messenger in 2011. From there, she fell in love with the world of newspapers. In 2014, Shanine and her co-worker Jocelyn Ottenbreit decided to purchase the Martensville Messenger, as they both felt it was an important part of the community and they wanted to continue its legacy within the City. Shanine has had the opportunity to meet so many amazing members of this community because of the Martensville Messenger, which is something that she is extremely grateful for. Her responsibilities include; reporting on local news, weekly production of the newspaper and day to day operations within the business.
