Kevin Patton ends his career at Henderson Gleaner after 25+ years

HENDERSON, Ky. — I’ve considered how I wanted to say this for the past few weeks.

I’m leaving The Gleaner.

For almost 26 years, I’ve been lucky to have a job I have loved. I rarely dreaded going to work — if you can call going to sporting events work.

I walked into The Gleaner in the summer of 1996 for the first time as an employee. I had been in the building a couple of times before for interviews – as an unsuccessful job candidate not long after I graduated from Murray State in 1989 and then joined a few weeks before I a bustling staff jammed into the building on Klutey Park Plaza.
