Weston LeweyWeston Lewey, 31, began stuffing inserts in newspapers when she was 9 years old and now oversees a publishing enterprise with more than $2 million in annual revenue.
A business graduate of the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, she represents the third generation of a family-owned business dating back 50 years. Plans to carry on the corporate legacy someday were dramatically altered when her only sibling died in a car wreck a decade ago.
"I did feel the weight of the family company fall on my shoulders although no one put it there," Lewey says of her brother's death.
Sister publications under the Times-Herald Publishing Co. banner include the Courier Index, a weekly newspaper in Marianna, and the East Arkansas Advertiser, a free shopper covering St. Francis, Lee and Cross counties.
Active in industrial recruitment, Lewey had the distinction in 1991 of becoming the first - and so far only - woman president of the Forrest City Chamber of Commerce.
