We are pleased to announce that WSU Alumna Carrie Meyer will kick off a brand new U. S. Department of Energy (DOE) Lecture Series in partnership with Washington State University (WSU) Tri-Cities.

Carrie Meyer joined the U.S. DOE Office of River Protection in 2007. She has 23 years of experience in communications, marketing, information management and public affairs in government, engineering, and nuclear power industries. She has completed assignments for the Assistant Secretary of Energy for Environmental Management and the Secretary of Energy focusing on congressional interactions, policy, tribal nation engagement, and communications.

Carrie Meyer’s lecture will cover the history of Hanford, the evolution from weapons production to environmental cleanup, and the challenges and successes realized today.

The Hanford area faces a significant new challenge as a large percentage of the workforce becomes eligible for retirement in the next 5 years.

The DOE and its contractors are actively recruiting interns and staff in a broad scope of professional and technical jobs.

Linking DOE operations with faculty, students, and workers in our communities, this lecture series focuses on sharing information and discussing key technical challenges to be solved by today and tomorrow’s workers.
