Intern & Scholar Alumna, Jackie Garvey
Meet CSF Staff’s Newest Addition:
Scholar Alumna, Jackie Garvey!
Searching for an internship to pair with her communications major at Salem State University, Jackie Garvey found herself on the Catholic Schools Foundation website, where there was a post looking for a Marketing and Development intern. After a review of her resume and an interview, Jackie was hired! What really made her the perfect candidate was that Jackie had been a CSF scholar at her high school of Arlington Catholic, graduating in 2016.
At her interview, Jackie made it apparent that she really wanted to give back and dedicate her time to the Catholic Schools Foundation, since they had done so much for her and her family through scholarship support. Both of her siblings attended Arlington Catholic, and she had attended St. Marys in Melrose for grammar school, so continuing a Catholic education was very important for her and her family. Without the help of our generous supporters, it wouldn’t have been possible for her and her siblings to receive a Catholic education.
Jackie is now a sophomore at Salem State, Majoring in Communications, with a minor in Spanish. She is also on the school’s tennis team and a part of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee. As for her work at CSF, she will be focusing on enhancing CSF’s social media presence and building a social media communications strategy. Working alongside the Advancement and Communications team, Jackie will also help spread the word of the work of the Foundation.
During her first day interning at CSF, Jackie said, “I am very excited to be a part of the CSF family, and grateful for the experience to be an intern. I would like to thank all those who made it possible for me to attend Arlington Catholic and help make me the student and woman I am today”.
CSF is thrilled to have Jackie as part of the team. It was apparent during her interview that her enthusiasm, poise and dedication to give back would be an incredible addition to the CSF family.
