The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee has that one of the four 2014 Bradley Prizes will be awarded to Kimberley A. Strassel, a member of The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board and its "Potomac Watch" columnist.

The award will be presented to Strassel during the 11th annual Bradley Prizes awards ceremony that will be held at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, June 18.  Each award carries a stipend of $250,000.

Kimberley Strassel joined Dow Jones & Company in 1994, working for The Wall Street Journal Europe in Brussels and then in London.  In 1999, she transferred to the paper’s New York bureau and soon thereafter joined the Journal's editorial page.  She assumed her current position in November 2005.  Strassel is an Oregon native and a graduate of Princeton University.

Ms. Strassel’s 'Potomac Watch' column is an essential example of journalistic excellence,said Michael W. Grebe, president and chief executive officer of the Bradley Foundation.  Her keen focus on government transparency and accountability as well as her important analyses on issues of the day strengthen the American fabric.”

The selection was based on nominations provided by more than 200 prominent individuals across the country and chosen by the Bradley Prizes Selection Committee.

“Through the Bradley Prizes, we recognize individuals like Ms. Strassel whose accomplishments strengthen American institutions, with the hope that others will strive for excellence in their respective fields,” Grebe said.
