Former long-time editor of The Herald-Press Mike Perkins encouraged attendees both in-person and online to write their own stories at a presentation at Huntington City-Township Public Library’s Keefer Center on Thursday.

Perkins, who worked at The Herald-Press newspaper in Huntington for around 40 years and served as editor for much of that time expressed that every person has a story to tell and shared his advice from his years in the newspaper industry.
