The Daily Herald, in partnership with the national service program Report for America, has hired Mallory Gruben to report on education in Snohomish County.

Gruben will focus on the stories often left untold about K-12 education, including the challenges of the past two years that impacted parents and school-age children and what’s ahead.

“I’m excited to be able to fill a news gap in the community with my coverage — especially at a time when a lot of attention is on the school system in our country.”

Report for America is an initiative of The Ground Truth Project a nonprofit journalism organization that is a registered 501c3, tax ID #46-0908502.

Report for America places journalists into local newsrooms to report on under-covered issues and communities. The program employs a unique funding match model, paying part of a corps member’s salary while encouraging community support for the remainder. This approach promotes shared investment in local journalism – community reporting for and by the community.
