The work I’ve been doing with Virginia State University has led me to something I never in a million years expected to see: an Emmy award!
The Capital and Chesapeake Bay Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences represents Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. On June 15, at their 55th Emmy Awards in Baltimore, VSU had several projects among the nominees. In the category of “Education/Schools – Program/Special,” I was nominated along with Jesse Vaughan and Bryce Spivey for our work on VSU Today. And we won (see p. 11)!
The whole thing is completely surreal, and I still haven’t gotten my hands on the statue … but what a cool thing to add to my resume.
2014 UPDATE: Since this post, I earned a second Emmy for my work on VSU Today. Both are proudly displayed on my mantel, amid all the thrift-shop finds and family photos. Unreal!
