About Me

I’m Griffin Clark, a senior at East Greenwich High School in Rhode Island. Starting this fall, I will be studying communications and economics at Boston College.

I discovered my passion for sports journalism as a Kid Reporter for Sports Illustrated Kids in middle school. During high school, I gained reporting, marketing, and media experience at Providence College Athletics and Naismith Awards. Last summer, I attended the leading high school journalism program in the nation, the Medill-Northwestern Journalism Institute.
