Sophomore wins Hannah Storm journalism internship at ND

Author: Arts and Letters


Jessica Bruno, a University of Notre Dame sophomore from Norwalk, Conn., has been selected as the first recipient of the Hannah Storm journalism internship through the Notre Dame Alumni Association.

The internship is funded in part by proceeds from “Notre Dame Inspirations,” a new book written by Storm, who is co-anchor of CBS News’ The Early Show, a 1983 Notre Dame graduate and recipient of the Alumni Association’s 2007 Harvey Award.

An American studies major who plans to enter the University’s journalism program next year, Bruno will assist with writing and editing Alumni Association publications, newsletters and Web site content during the current semester. In future years, the internship will last the entire academic year.

“Notre Dame Inspirations: The University’s Most Successful Alumni Talk About Life, Spirituality, Football – and Everything Else Under the Dome,” published last September, is a collection of stories from 32 prominent Notre Dame alumni from graduation years 1943 to 2001. Their professions range from athletics to medicine to law and entertainment, and all share their reflections on the lessons they learned at Notre Dame.
