Eagle Valley Enterprise has new editor

Daily Staff Report
Vail, CO Colorado
Pamela Holmes Boyd

EAGLE COUNTY ” Pamela Holmes Boyd, an Eagle resident since 1984, has been named editor of the Eagle Valley Enterprise, effective Monday, March 31.

She replaces Kathy Heicher, who is leaving the editor post, but not the newspaper. Heicher, who is semi-retiring, will continue as a part-time reporter at the Enterprise.

“The Enterprise will continue to benefit from a staff that has a long history in the area, and knows downvalley issues,” said Enterprise Publisher Steve Gall.

Boyd, a graduate of the University of Colorado School of Journalism, began her journalism career at the Enterprise 24 years ago, as a reporter.

She remained with the Enterprise until 1998, then worked for five years as a correspondent for the Vail Daily. From 2002 – 2006, Boyd worked as communications coordinator for Eagle County Schools. She returned to the Enterprise last year.

“I’ve come full circle,” observes Boyd.

Noting that the downvalley communities of Eagle and Gypsum have markedly changed over the past two decades, Boyd said it is her goal to keep the Enterprise relevant for residents.

“We also have a strong tie to this valley’s history because the Enterprise is celebrating its 110th anniversary this year,” she continued.

Boyd and her husband, John are parents to Emily, 17, and Eric, 10. The family resides at Eagle Ranch.

Boyd can be reached at 328-6656 x 7, or at pboyd@eaglevalleyenteprise.com

Heicher will continue to write downvalley news and feature stories for the Enterprise and the Vail Daily. She’ll be using some of that free time to volunteer with the Eagle County Historical Society, and to garden, hike, ski, fish, and quilt.

She’ll likely also continue her campaign to ensure that locals call the Eagle Valley by it’s true name. Heicher can be reached at 328-6656 x 5; or kheicher@eaglevalleyenterprise.com.
