Jackie Spinner gave the commencement address to the graduating class of Lakeland College at the Todd Wehr Center. Jackie Spinner spent 13 months in Iraq covering the war and chronicled that experience in her book, written with her twin sister Jenny, Tell Them I Didn’t Cry: A Young Journalist’s Story of Joy, Loss, and Survival in Iraq, published by Scribner. She told graduates about her tough transition from war-torn Iraq to returning to daily life working in Washington, D.C., and urged them to embrace their own transition armed with their degree. close
