Sandra Clark

Vice President for News and Civic Dialogue

Before becoming the Inquirer's managing editor in 2014, Clark served as a senior news editor and deputy managing editor for digital news operations. Under her leadership, the paper won a Pulitzer Prize for criticism in 2014. Clark also implemented two of PMN's most successful reader-engagement initiatives: "My Daughter's Kitchen," a healthy-meals cooking program now in 25 schools, and "Black History: What I Wish I Knew."

Clark came to Philadelphia in 1980 at the urging of Acel Moore, the Inquirer's legendary reporter and columnist, who died in February 2016. After 10 years at the Inquirer, she left for six years to work with the Peace Corps in Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde, and to act as a representative for Africare in Mozambique. She has been a curriculum consultant for the education nonprofit Foundations, Inc., and currently advises the Arcadia University student blog.

Clark is board president of the Pennsylvania Associated Press Managing Editors. She earned her B.S. in journalism at the University of Kansas and an M.B.A. from Arcadia University. She lives in Wyncote, Pennsylvania.
