ST. THOMAS — Coming full circle is an expression that exemplifies Eunice Bedminster. Coming back to St. Thomas, and back to The Virgin Islands Daily News as the newspaper’s new executive editor, that circle has expanded far beyond her dreams as a once fledgling reporter.

From Dominica, Bedminster was raised on St. Thomas and graduated from Charlotte Amalie High School. In 1982, she was named Female Athlete of the Year on St. Thomas and went to the University of Maryland on a track scholarship. She graduated in 1986 with a major in fashion merchandising and a minor in arts and technical writing.
