PELL CITY — It was announced Tuesday that advertising representative Dale Halpin was named the new Pell City Bureau manager for The Daily Home and the St. Clair Times.

“Dale Halpin has performed at a high level for The Daily Home and the St. Clair Times and is more than ready to take on new responsibilities,” said Ed Fowler, publisher and editor of The Daily Home and publisher of the St. Clair Times. “I am pleased that she has accepted this new role and look forward to working with her as she moves into her new position.”

Halpin began working as the advertising representative for the St. Clair County area more than 10 years ago. She will replace Sandy Ponder, former Pell City Bureau manager, who recently retired.

“We are all going to dearly miss Sandy Ponder, but I appreciate this opportunity and look forward to working with the great staff in the Pell City bureau office,” Halpin said. “It is my pleasure to continue to serve as the advertising representative in St. Clair County for The Daily Home and the St. Clair Times. I have grown close to so many of my customers and value these relationships.”

Halpin graduated from Talladega High School and is an American Institute of Banking graduate with diplomas in banking, finance and general banking principles.

She lives in Talladega with her husband, Ken. The couple have one daughter, two sons and four grandchildren.

Halpin is a former member of the Pilot Club, former president of AIB of the Anniston area. She served as the Talladega United Way kickoff chairwoman, and on the American Red Cross Blood Drive Committee in Talladega.

“Dale Halpin has excelled in outside sales for St. Clair County during the past 10 years,” said Pam Adamson, advertising director for The Daily Home and St. Clair Times. “During this time she has also shown tremendous leadership qualities, and she greatly deserves this promotion. Dale will not only continue with her outside sales for the county but she will also serve as the senior sales representative for the Pell City bureau office, as well as the new bureau manager. It is a pleasure to work with Dale, and I look forward to the next 10 years.”
