Check out the WTNH News8 segment on junior Abigail Kelly ’17, selected as one of twelve in the nation as an Envision Chase the Race 2016 finalist. Envision created the Chase the Race 2016 to give students the opportunity to play an active role in the U.S. Presidential election process and to empower them to use their voice to make a positive impact on the world. The twelve reporters will be on site at key events to capture milestone experiences leading up to the 2017 Presidential Inauguration. As a Presidential Election “Super Tuesday” reporter, Abby will travel to Arlington, Virginia on March 1 to interview the candidates and cover various election related events.
Abby has been enthralled with news anchors since the age of five and is now editor-in-chief of Alethea, our school newspaper. She is an alumna of the Envision National Young Leaders State Conference, a requirement for all Chase the Race 2016 applicants. “I am so excited for this once in a lifetime opportunity…I have a strong interest in history and English and am considering a career in journalism, writing, and communications,” offered Abby.
Congratulations to Abby…Sacred Heart is proud.
