About Lynda Mcdonnell
MCDONNELL, LYNDA is the executive director of ThreeSixty, a youth journalism program based at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota. Her responsibilities include raising funds and directing the non-profit program, which teaches Minnesota teens - particularly low-income and minority teens -- the skills and ethics of journalism.

The program serves more than 300 teens each year through summer camps, after-school classes, classroom coaching and an online magazine at www.threesixtyjournalism.org. McDonnell has been a journalist in Minnesota for more than 30 years. She spent 20 years as a reporter and editor for the St. Paul Pioneer Press, most recently as the political editor. Before that, she was a business and economics reporter for the Minneapolis Tribune. McDonnell reads profusely and sings a tolerable soprano. She and her journalist husband live in Minneapolis and have two terrific sons and daughters-in-law. She is an essayist and short story writer who loves hiking the Ice Age Trail in western Wisconsin. She claims her messy desk is a sign of rampant creativity.
