Episode 7 – Citizen Of The Day
On this episode of The Build Guild podcast, the guys host Sha Johnson, an extraordinary woman in the Searcy community. Originally from the Houston, Texas, area, Sha came to Searcy and has left her mark.
She began her dream of pursuing a career in the legal field in high school at her magnet school, hosting mock court sessions involving her fellow classmates. Pursuing an undergraduate degree in criminal justice just seemed to make sense. Eventually she became a Sergeant at the White County Sheriff’s Office, the highest position non-commissioned law enforcement personnel could attain. But after three years, something was missing. After being encouraged by a co-worker to applying for a position with the local newspaper The Daily Citizen, Sha decided, “Why not?”
Writing has always been a part of Sha’s life-from the time she was little she remembers writing stories. She has published one book since her arrival in Searcy, and now works full-time as a journalist for The Daily Citizen, the local newspaper where The Build Guild Podcast takes place. Sha talks about the struggles with seeking out stories, changes to her writing style, and how she can never look at her work once it’s over because she feels like she got it right the first time.
In this unconventional episode of The Build Guild Podcast, Sha talks us through the justice system in White County, her struggles with finding self-confidence and assurance, and keeping her voice through it all.
