Kate Bolduan’s new CNN job a wonderful accomplishment

GOSHEN — Goshen is a special community for so many people who take great pride and effort to make it a better place to live, work and recreate every day. There is an impressive roster of people who grew up here, or came to school here, and have stuck around to make Goshen home. That is a testament to the quality of life here.

Still, we can be reminded of the impact of this community by individuals who leave the nest, venture out into the world and shine bright during their walk through life. Kate Bolduan is one of those people. A former Goshen Junior Miss and editor of Goshen High School’s “Tomahawk” student newspaper, Bolduan graduated from GHS is 2001 and went on to George Washington University where she earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism in 2005. Two years later she was hired by CNN as a correspondent in the network’s Washington D.C. Bureau.

Last week it was announced that the Bolduan will be the co-host of a new CNN morning show, along with Chris Cuomo and Michaela Pereira. The show is scheduled to premiere later this spring. This is quite an accomplishment for Bolduan who has worked very hard to get to this important point of her career. Congratulations, Kate. We’re proud of you.

It is not uncommon for Goshen natives to go on to high-profile success. Cheryl Preheim, a 1991 GHS graduate is a news anchor at 9News in Denver, an NBC affiliate. Ian Rogers, a 1990 graduate of GHS, got his start with the Beastie Boys, became general manager of Yahoo Music and is now trailblazer in the music industry as executive chairman of Topspin Media.

Rick Mirer, a 1989 GHS grad, was a three-year starting quarterback for the University of Notre Dame and played 11 seasons in the NFL. He now owns a vineyard and is very involved in charity work. And there is J. Terry Clapacs, a 1961 graduate of Goshen High School, now retired, who was the vice president of administration at Indiana University in Bloomington. He also served as the school’s interim athletic director in the early 2000s.

Those impressive individuals are just a few from Goshen who went on to accomplish great things. There are many more. Their success is a testament to their character and a positive reflection on their hometown.
