    Miriam Nelson, a health and nutrition scholar, scientist, higher education administrator, and government policy advisor, has been chosen as the next president of Hampshire College. 

     Since 2016, Nelson has been director of the Sustainability Institute at the University of New Hampshire. She spent almost 30 years at Tufts University.  

     WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief  Paul Tuthill spoke earlier this week with Nelson.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
