Teri Ehresman
Congratulations to Teri Ehresman of Idaho Falls, who has been elected president of the National Federation of Press Women.

Ehresman was elected to a two-year term to lead the national organization at a recent meeting in Salt Lake City. She has served as first vice president, second vice president and secretary of the organization. She also has served in many leadership roles in the Idaho affiliate, Media Network Idaho.

Ehresman works at the Idaho National Laboratory in the Communications and Governmental Affairs office as the communications lead for nuclear science and technology programs.  She previously worked as a reporter and editor for the Idaho Falls Post Register.

On a personal note, I've known Teri since 1981, when she was regional editor and I was the paper's staff writer in Challis.
