Media Movers and Shakers


The third annual headliners celebration-an evening of gratitude for the many faculty, staff and administrators who give their time and expertise to represent Holy Cross in print, radio and television media-drew an enthusiastic crowd this winter. Along with a custom menu created by Holy Cross Dining (spotlighting the range of dishes that had been featured in the news in 2010), awards were given to those whose contributions were most helpful in creating a national media presence for the College.

The Newsmaker Awards, given to those who have demonstrated increasing excellence in, and dedication to, media relations, went to associate chaplain and director of liturgy, Paul Covino (left), and associate professor of religious studies, Joanne Pierce (second from left).

Associate professor of economics, Robert Baumann (right) took home the Rising Star Award, which recognizes outstanding early contributions to media relations efforts and the promise of a sustained commitment. 

Head football coach, Tom Gilmore (second from right), accepted the evening's most prestigious honor, the Headliner Award, for his significant work to advance the image and reputation of the College through his contributions to national media outlets.
