Victoria Coulson, Media Centre manager at the Middlebrough Evening Gazette, is leaving to take up a wider role within Trinity Mirror.
Victoria, (36), has been involved in developing links between schools and the newspaper during the past nine years.
And after starting off with just a desk and a list of schools to contact, the Gazette Media Centre was opened by Tony Blair earlier this year.
Now Victoria, who has previously worked for the Shields Gazette and Sunderland Echo, is planning to move to Northampton and will widen her role within Trinity Regional Newspapers, developing education, community and newspapers links across the group.
The Gazette Media Centre is a purpose-built, state-of-the art learning facility that can be used by local schoolchildren, community groups and businesses for computer training and publishing which is directly linked to the Gazette’s printing press.
Since opening the centre has been fully booked.
Victoria said: “I am proud to have seen newspaper and education go so far together and have had great support from schools on Teesside throughout.”
