NEW FACE OF MATER DEI: Michael Brennan was announced the new president of Mater Dei High School on Jan. 7, 2022. After long-time president Patrick Murphy retired, the position was held by Father Steve Sallot before Father Walter Jenkins was hired. After Jenkins returned to Notre Dame for a special assignment, Brennan applied for and received the position and has now been part of the Mater Dei community for over a year.

BEHIND THE CAMERA: Genova, working as Floor Director, positions the two on-camera anchors while setting up for the show. The Floor Director controls the room that houses the camera crew and anchors and helps communicate with the control room. Throughout her years in the program, Genova has experienced each role, but favors directing and mentoring others. “When we shoot the show everyone spreads out and goes to different stations, either in the control room or the studio room,” Genova said. “We have one director for each room that communicates to run [both of] the rooms.”
