Congratulations to chapter member, Carolyn Kelley Klinger, who is a new Fellow of STC.


For her boundless enthusiasm, her advocacy for STC as the voice of the profession, and her unwavering devotion to recruiting, training, and supporting STC volunteers.

Carolyn joined STC in 1995 and has been an active volunteer for the STC Washington, DC chapter since 1998. She is a two-time past president of the STC Washington, DC Chapter and has held all the chapter's Administrative Council roles and served on most of its committees. She is an enthusiastic booster of STC, speaking often to schools and professional groups about the benefits of the profession.

Carolyn has served the Society by acting as one of its representatives to the Bureau of Labor Statistics during STC's successful bid for inclusion of technical communication in the Occupational Outlook Handbook. Carolyn has also served on the STC Nominations Committee and the CAC.

We are extremely proud of Carolyn and all that she does for the chapter and the Society.

The rank of Fellow is the highest honor an STC member can receive and may only be awarded to Associate Fellows who have continued to excel in the field of technical communication. STC Fellows contribute to the profession and the Society at the highest level, as indicated by their publications, presentations, awards, mentoring, leadership, and community service.
