Television journalist Tiffany Tarpley encouraged students toward leadership

November 17, 2017

WKYC Channel 3 journalist Tiffany Tarpley encouraged Ursuline College students to be persistent in pursuit of their goals, look up to their mentors and eventually become mentors to others. 

Tarpley spoke to an appreciative Ursuline audience on Nov. 14 as one event in a week-long series commemorating the November 17, 1871 founding of Ursuline as the first Catholic women’s college in Ohio. The theme for Founder’s Week was “Women in Leadership.”

Tarpley shared her experiences as a woman in a leadership role – on camera – every day. She talked about her career path, how she overcame various obstacles, and how prayer has been a source of strength in her life.

About mentors she said, “It’s good to have someone that you can look up to and talk to about your concerns and learn about how they got where they are. But you have to remember to give back, too.”

A Lorain, Ohio native, Tarpley joined the Channel 3 news team in March of 2014. She reports weekdays for the morning newscasts and hosts WKYC's new live community affairs show, "We The People," every Friday at noon. WKYC is Cleveland’s NBC affiliate station.

Prior to WKYC-TV, Tarpley worked in a variety of roles, behind the scenes and in front of the camera, for news outlets in Milwaukee; Toledo; and Lima, Ohio. She is a graduate of Bowling Green State University with a bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism and the honor of Broadcast Journalism Student of the Year. Tarpley is a volunteer with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lorain County's after-school program at Larkmoor Elementary.
