New Director of Marketing: Mrs. Mary Kinney

Saint Joe recently added a new addition to their team: Mrs. Mary Kinney, Director of Marketing and Public Relations.

Mrs. Kinney is a Saint Joe Alum who graduated from the class of 2011. She was a member of one of the last classes to graduate from the old saint Joe building that was “hot and smelly.” After high school she went to IU Bloomington where she thought she wanted to go into broadcasting. But Mrs. Kinney soon found she wasn’t up for waking up at 5:00 A.M just to put get ready and put on a dress. She earned her bachelor of arts in journalism and a minor in biology.

She then interned in Uganda working with the Daily Monitor. This is where she wrote about HIV prevalence in the country’s second largest paper. After this she moved to North Dakota as a page designer for four years. Then she worked as a reporter in Bloomington before returning to Michiana and landing a job at the South Bend Tribune. Kinney wrote about restaurants and retail in the area – especially new businesses. This one of the main reasons she loves what she does because “It can take me anywhere.” But she adds, “You always find your way back home.”

This is even more true now¬† since she is working at our very Saint Joseph High School. She is most excited to get reacquainted with the community and share everyone’s stories as the Director of Marketing. Kinney notes how much she enjoyed covering the recent Diaper Drive – capturing the passage of diapers along the entire human chain from the Black Box theater across the street to the Women’s Care Center. Kinney looks forward to covering the other amazing things happening in the comuunity.
