A friendly and familiar face has rejoined the Sweetwater Reporter advertising team. Brenda Morales, Sweetwater native, reprised her advertising executive role in March of 2013. She first brought her advertising expertise to the Sweetwater Reporter from 2002-2003 and then again from 2008-2010.Morales was born and raised in Sweetwater. She graduated from Sweetwater High School in 2001 and then again from Texas State Technical College in 2007 with a degree in digital imaging and design.She and her partner of 12 years, Adon Reyna, have three children together — Miguel, 11, attends Sweetwater Intermediate School; Victoria, 9, attends East Ridge Elementary; and youngest, Desire, 5, attends Southeast Elementary. Spending time as a family is important, so the couple take their three children to the drive-in theater in Abilene most weekends. "In the summer time, we take the kids every weekend to see a movie," said Morales. "The drive-in has two showings and we try to see both movies, as long as it isn't anything scary."As an advertising executive, Morales sells advertising space in the Sweetwater Reporter for local businesses. She works directly with business owners to ensure they receive their maximum advertising potential.For anyone in need of advertising assistance, contact Morales at 236-6677 or simply e-mail her at brenda@sweetwaterreporter.com.
