Meet Our Summer Interns

We’re very pleased and proud to introduce six aspiring journalists who are joining this summer as interns. These six young women and men are graduates and students at high schools in New Canaan as well as Norwalk and Greenwich, and four of them are in college now. Our readers for a few weeks have been reading summer intern Sarah Maddox’s articles on the site, and soon will see stories appearing from Brian Bodick, Kim Devine, Griffin Golden, Maura Kelley and Emma Nolan. What follows is some basic information about each of them. The Summer Internship Program is sponsored by Baskin-Robbins.
