Grace Sutherland '16 graduated with Magna Cum Laude honors from USC. She said, “The Broadcast Journalism department was the greatest outlet for me. Yes, it was a class, but I always looked at it as the peak of my day. Because of the Broadcast department, I was able to find my loves of news, politics, and film. I learned the unpredictable nature of the news is what I love. I love that every day is different. I learned the basic ideals of patience, spontaneity and quick thinking.”

ESPN Production Assistant and Sacred Heart Greenwich alumna Bridget Scaturro '14 spoke to the Introduction to Filmmaking class via Zoom on October 29. 

"Sports broadcasting is a scary industry to go into. It's really competitive, and women are often put down in the industry just because it's a male-dominated industry. Sacred Heart definitely gave me the confidence to decide that that's what I wanted to do and pursue it and not just blow it off because I heard that it could be hard," Bridget said.

“CBS Face the Nation” moderator Margaret Brennan began her address to Upper School students at Sacred Heart Greenwich by stating the obvious.

 “Nothing about this year has been expected,” Brennan said from the basement of her home, where, in order to continue her work during the COVID-19 pandemic, she has built a makeshift television studio.

Brennan, a graduate from Sacred Heart’s Class of 1998, made a return of sorts to her alma mater during these uncertain times.
