Media Policy

Kennedy Catholic High School’s goal is to provide the media and other professional organizations with comprehensive and hospitable access to our Athletic Program. We appreciate the positive publicity our school and student-athletes receive as a result of your work. In formulating a media policy, we tried to address as many groups and questions as possible. This media policy applies to those legitimate media outlets interested in covering Kennedy Catholic Athletics. 

Coach and Student-Athlete Interview Policies 

  • Interview requests for Kennedy Catholic High School coaches and student-athletes should be made through the Kennedy Catholic Athletic Department by contacting Harley Wells-Schultz, Assistant Athletic Director,  or Alyson Soma, Director of Marketing and Communications.
  • All Kennedy Catholic coach and student-athlete interview requests should be made at least 48 hours in advance. 
  • Media members are asked to please not contact Kennedy Catholic student-athletes directly for interviews.
  • When on campus during school hours (7:30am – 3:30pm), all members of the media are required to check in at the Main Office to receive a visitor's pass for the time they will be on campus. 
  • After receiving the visitor’s pass, the media member will be directed to either Harley Wells-Schultz, Alyson Soma, or a member of the coaching staff for their interview.

  • Should the member of the media organization be on campus after school hours, they must check in with Harley Wells-Schultz, or a member of the coaching staff for their interview.
