Paige Sutherland, a member of the College of the Holy Cross class of 2012, and a reporter with experience in Washington, Boston and South Africa, has been hired by The Associated Press to help cover breaking news and generate enterprise in Massachusetts according to AP’s East Region Editor.

A philosophy major with a concentration in peace and conflict studies, Sutherland says, “My time at Holy Cross has given me multiple skills that I use every day while I am reporting. I learned how to think critically, ask questions, multitask and work under tight deadlines, which are all crucial to working in a newsroom.”

Originally from Groveland, Mass., she worked at the Weekend Argus in Cape Town while at the Medill School of Journalism’s graduate program, and covered national security in Washington, D.C. While at Holy Cross, she interned at WBZ and WHDH in Boston, and worked at the College’s  radio station, WCHC.

She was captain of the cross country team both her junior and senior year, captain of the track team her senior year, and ran everything from the mile to the 10k. Awards include Crusader of the Week and Patriot League Runner of the Week. She says that the program’s head coach Jim Kavanagh “was very influential to me during my time at Holy Cross and still is!”
