Mallory Gruben reports on K-12 education in Snohomish County for The Daily Herald in Everett, Washington. Previously, she freelanced on the north and central Oregon coast, reporting primarily for the Newport News-Times and The Astorian. She started her journalism career at The Daily News in Longview, Washington, where she covered education, business and the environment. Her work has won awards from the Northwest Society of Professional Journalists. A graduate of Hastings College in Nebraska, she was editor-in-chief of the student paper and helped to save the paper from being eliminated by budget cuts. Gruben grew up in Eckley, a village of about 230 people in the northeastern part of Colorado.
For more than a century, The Daily Herald has been the leading news source in Snohomish County, home to 18 cities and over 800,000 residents. This news organization's fundamental philosophy, first stated in 1901, is simple: “There is in this community no one so poor or insignificant that The Herald will not defend him if he be wronged, no one so high and powerful that the Herald will not fearlessly attack him if he seek to do injustice.”
