The bureau chief for the local National Public Radio affiliate in the Tri-Cities recently was named 2016 Woman of the Year by Washington State University.
Anna King, a 2000 graduate of WSU and former Tri-City Herald reporter, was recognized for her engagement in the communities she serves, where she’s covered stories ranging from issues related to Native American tribes, rural agricultural communities and women connected to the Hanford site.
King will receive her award at the annual Women of Distinction Luncheon and Symposium on March 22 at the Pullman campus.
Dorothy Wiley, a lawyer and a founding member of the Alternatives to Violence of the Palouse, also will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award. Six other women will receive Women of Distinction honors for their accomplishments and contributions to the community.
