Lisa Savage is a writer at WordSouth. Before coming to WordSouth in 2016, Lisa was a reporter at the Gadsden Times for 22 years covering public safety, courts, education and human interest feature stories. She has worked in the newspaper industry since 1986. Through the years, she won numerous Associated Press awards for her work. She also won five Chairman’s Awards from the New York Times Regional Newspaper Group for investigative, in-depth reporting for stories that uncovered nepotism in county government, in-depth looks at drug abuse and domestic violence, and the impact of violent tornadoes. The Chairman’s Awards also include work that was most moving for Lisa — a six-part series of the 1963 murder of William Moore, a civil rights marcher from Baltimore, who was killed near Gadsden while walking to Mississippi.
