Sacred Heart Greenwich seniors Olivia Christensen, Lé-Anne Johnson, Eloise Moulton, Isabelle Pipher, Sofia Pye, and Lilly Thompson will study film, journalism, and media at their respective universities next year. These five seniors will utilize the skills they have learned in Sacred Heart’s media programs to pursue their passions in the news and communications industry.
Broadcast Journalism is not merely an elective at our school. It is the first step of a lifelong journey for many students. Our alumnae go on to study at top media and filmmaking programs around the country such as USC, Syracuse University, NYU, Northwestern, and Elon.
One out of every two broadcast alumnae pursue careers in communications, media, or filmmaking. Sacred Heart Greenwich alumnae are currently working at Netflix, HBO, Late Night with Seth Meyers, Sesame Workshop, Disney, and NBC News.
Our Alumnae Media Network group is a resource for Sacred Heart Greenwich alumnae who work in the media, television, film, social media, and communications fields. We connect graduates of Sacred Heart Greenwich who work in the media with current students and share opportunities for networking events, internships, mentorships, and job listings.
1. Provide resources and networking opportunities for alumnae who work in the media field.
2. Create an alumnae network to help educate our current students about majoring in media in college and career advice.
3. Share opportunities for networking events, internships, mentorships, and job listings.
The Sacred Heart Greenwich Alumnae Media Network presented the “Mix and Mingle: Navigating the Media Industry” event on November 18. Panelists included five Sacred Heart Greenwich alumnae, Ms. Kate Benjamin '11, Ms. Caroline Keller '13, Ms. Erica Jorgensen '04, Ms. Erin Manning '13, and the emcee of the event, Ms. Caroline Burch '15.
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.”
