Boulder Weekly Editor Gets Lifetime Achievement Award from Regional SPJ

Boulder Weekly editor Pamela White has received one of the top honors given by the Colorado chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ), a lifetime achievement award called “Keeper of the Flame.”

She accepted the honor at the annual “Top of the Rockies” award ceremony, held April 15 at the Denver Press Club.

“Well-behaved women seldom make history,” Colorado SPJ president (and former Colorado Springs Independent staffer) Cara DeGette said of White, lauding her for a career built on championing the poor and disenfranchised, from Native Americans to women in prison.
