“Being in good company means that we are all committed to doing GOOD work! There is a purpose, it’s more than a job,” says Harkrider. “It is about making a difference, changing lives and communities. The purpose is what drives me and I couldn’t be prouder to commit to GOOD!” Learn more about Nicki and her TEGNA purpose by clicking here.

They found new ways to check in with each other, celebrate successes, and keep their operations strong despite the challenges.”
