With experience in copywriting, photography and website management, Lydia Slattery has joined the Luther College community as the new media relations specialist on campus.

Originally from the northwest Iowa community of Spencer, Slattery attended Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wis., after graduating from high school, and received a Bachelor of Arts in journalism.

She worked as a reporter for three years in Oshkosh, Wis., before receiving her master’s degree in journalism and mass communication from UW-Madison in December of last year.

“In my time as a reporter, I won first place in the open records category twice for Wisconsin Newspaper Awards,” she commented.

As a former reporter, Slattery said she has a good grasp of current media landscape and she’s eager to put her knowledge to work at Luther.

Slattery began her new position on the Luther campus in early August.
