Assigning Lists to certain team members

New to Trello and want to use as a virtual tracking for a publication (in office is usually old school folder with sign off tracking form attached).

Currently created as: Cards are individual stories. Lists are people who need to do something to the story. Stories (cards) are moved down the line of lists (people) until it's ready to go to the printer. 

Is there a way assign a list to a particular team member (or more) and set up an email notification so they are notified when a task is added for them?  So when the cards are moved through the production process they are notified when it's their turn? There are multiple people: second readers, editor, fact checker, designer, review, proof checker, etc. They all don't need to be notified every time a card is moved. 

If not, is there a better way to set this up to accomplish what I am trying to do?

@Staci Lanham You can put their name in the list title and then tell them to "watch" the list so they get notified:
