Kay Olson

Tri-Cities Clinical nursing instructor Kay Olson will be honored along with 12 others as Women of Distinction – those who’ve made notable contributions to the WSU Tri-Cities campus and community.

The 13 women will be recognized at a gallery exhibition opening and reception on April 13 on the WSU Tri-Cities campus.

“This is a way to honor our female leaders within the WSU Tri-Cities community who have gone above and beyond to improve access to educational opportunities, driven momentous initiatives within their respective professions and have given generously of their free time in dedication to service and volunteerism,” said Chris Meiers, vice chancellor for enrollment management and student services.

Besides Olson, others honored include Anna King, news correspondent for the Northwest News Network and Northwest Public Radio, and Cindy Bruckner-Lea, project manager at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
