Jaclyn Marr graduated from Manhattan College with a Bachelor’s degree in Communication. She worked on the student newspaper The Quadrangle for four years. For three of those years, she served as assistant sports editor. She focused on women’s sports in order to get the women’s teams equal attention as the men’s teams. She covered the women’s soccer and lacrosse beats as well as women’s tennis, basketball and softball.
Marr has experience with freelance reporting, covering local high school and private school sports teams in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Manhattan, including Riverdale Country Day and Cardinal Hayes. She had articles featured in the Bronx Times and the Brooklyn Daily. Expanding from print journalism, Marr has experience with video and photography as well. She would take photos from games she covered and featured some postgame interviews on video.
With the communication world getting more digital, Marr has gained experience in online articles and social media. As she was a part of her school’s student newspaper creating a website two years ago, she began posting her articles online ever since and would link them to social media. She increased her experience with her editorial internship at Metro US, which included the same process of posting articles on the website and using social media to promote them.
Aside from sports and journalism, volunteering and charity work has become an interest of her’s. She has participated in Bronx Congressman’s Andrew Cohen’s 2013 campaign and has been frequently active with charity events for breast cancer awareness as a member of Alpha Upsilon Pi Sorority for three years.
Marr earned a bachelor’s degree in communication with a concentration in journalism and a minor in psychology.
