Mike Zorn is a 1984 graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and has been employed in the field of graphic design, advertising and marketing since enrolling in 1982.

Mikes first job after graduation was an advertising agency whose clients included Monroeville Mall, Pool City and One Oxford Centre.

After several years of working in the retail market, Mr. Zorn left the agency to strike out on his own accompanied by his wife, Susan.  Together they built a thriving advertising studio with a client list that included The Pittsburgh Opera and 84 Lumber.

Mike, Susan and their 3 small children moved to West Virginia in 1996. Mike was offered and accepted the position of Creative Director in a growing technology company.

That company grew from a handful of employees to a $60M business headquartered in major cities across the United States, Canada and the UK. 

Mikes award winning work has appeared in many national and international magazines and trade publications. 

Our team would like to bring this experience to a new media outlet in West Union, The Doddridge Independent.  

We can offer any design service you may need to keep your business top-of-mind and your marketing budget performing at peak efficiency.

Senator Joe Manchin at his press conference said it best on Saturday “The Boy Scouts of America and the state of West Virginia are like peas and carrots. We’re a perfect fit -- an organization that builds character, inspires reverence and promotes old-fashioned family values and a state that lives them.”

And what an amazing fit it is.  The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve is a staggering 10,600 acre tract of forested mountains, flowing streams and green meadows adjacent to the 70,000 acre New River Gorge National River area.  This is truly the largest gem in the crown of West Virginia.

During his speech at the Stillwater Sustainability Treehouse Sen. Manchin said “We were a state of breathtaking beauty, world-class adventure and unbridled discovery, a state that believed in the same ideals and principles as the Boy Scouts, a state that would take great pride in being an important part of the Scouts’ second century.

This week in The Independent Gardener, we will be highlighting the bane of every gardener’s existence, weeds. Weed control is probably the worst part about having a garden. You plant your nice tomatoes and peppers in your freshly tilled beds and then BAM! A couple weeks later there are all these good for nothing weeds popping up, crowding your plants, taking the life right out from underneath them. Annoying. Well this week we will be looking at some easy ways to keep the weeds out with out breaking your back. 

Because of the exemplary work that Julie Todd turns out year after year with each of her job duties and responsibilities, Doddridge County proudly nominated her for the RESA 7 Exemplary Service Personnel Award for the 2012-2013 school year.  Any county employee would be quick to point out that it would be difficult to calculate the level of her worth to our overall school system. Every board of education needs a “go to person” to assign some of the most critical job duties. Certain employees are entrusted with these types of responsibilities because they have a very high level of competence to get a job done correctly, on time and with a great attitude . . . this is Julie Todd.
