Carolyn Lamberson joined The Spokesman-Review in 2008. Formerly the Assistant Managing Editor/Features, she is the Senior Editor for Special Projects. In addition to her work as lead editor for Sunday's front page, Lamberson will be coordinating special sections and other long-term projects. She also will serve as the newsroom's grantwriter, with an eye toward bringing in new sources of funding to maintain and strengthen The Spokesman-Review's local journalism.
Earlier this fall, The Spokesman-Review honored 15 women for the work they have done to improve the quality of life in the Inland Northwest. (Revisit those stories at spokesman.com/sections/women-of-the-year/.) On Thursday night at the Bing Crosby Theater, we’ll give these fine community members a proper shoutout during a special Women of the Year event with the Northwest Passages Book Club. Joining us will be two impressive women who talk about “Making Life Work on Your Terms.” Karen Wickre is a former executive at Google and Twitter, and Tess Vigeland is a former reporter and host for the public radio business magazine “Marketplace.” Joining them onstage to moderate the conversation will be Mary Cullinan, president of Eastern Washington University.
