Event Description:
Colleen McCain Nelson is vice president and editorial page editor of The Kansas City Star. She joined The Star in December 2016 after working as a White House Correspondent for The Wall Street Journal and as an editorial writer and columnist for The Dallas Morning News.

Nelson is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and a former political reporter who has chronicled three presidential campaigns. In 2016, she criss-crossed the country with Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. As a White House reporter for The Wall Street Journal, she wrote about the policies, politics and personalities in President Barack Obama’s administration, traveling the world with the president and vice president.

Before joining The Wall Street Journal, Nelson worked at The Dallas Morning News where she wrote about local, state and national politics as a reporter and, later, as an editorial writer and a columnist.

In 2010, Ms. Nelson and two of her colleagues were awarded the Pulitzer Prize for editorial writing, recognition for a series of editorials that condemned the stark economic and social disparity separating Dallas’ thriving northern half and struggling southern half.

Nelson was raised in Salina, Kan., and is a graduate of the University of Kansas.
