Noelle Graves is an award-winning journalist who worked for more than a decade at mid-sized daily newspapers around Massachusetts and later at radio and television stations in the Boston area. She covered education and political beats, highlighted by interviews with then-senatorial candidate Mitt Romney, Sen. John Kerry, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, among others. Her later work focused on enterprise reporting, specifically social issue features. Her recognition includes a first-place award from the New England Press Association (now the New England Newspaper & Press Association) for her article examining the effects of long-term incarceration on prisoners. After 10 years in news, she joined the corporate communications team at Eastern Bank, where she assisted with speechwriting and public relations and oversaw the publication of the Annual Report. She earned her bachelor’s degree at Gordon College, where she served as editor-in-chief of the student newspaper. She earned her master’s degree at Boston University, where her thesis project, a magazine-length piece on the deadliest arson fire in Massachusetts history, was awarded first place by the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication. As a senior lecturer at Boston University, she has taught three required courses, including the journalism module of COM 101, the gateway course to the College of Communication.
