SUTV, the student television station at
Shippensburg University, recently received a collegiate Emmy® from the
Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
Two SU alumni working in the Harrisburg area also received Emmys® .
Marina Barnett '17 earned recognition for her public affairs/community
service piece produced for SUTV. The piece, “Seeing eye dogs,” featured Dr.
Andrea Malmount, assistant professor of teacher education, 11-year-old Joe Surotchak
and their work with seeing eye dogs. Barnett is currently working as a reporter for WHSV TV-3 in Harrisonburg, Va.
“When I won, I was shocked and excited. I do believe it's a testament
of hard work, and it proves that the things we learn as students in SUTV
prepare us for the future,” Barnett said.
According to Jake Gillespie, SUTV general manager, “Students in
SUTV, as well as all students involved in Ship's student media groups, put in
countless hours outside of class to produce high quality content, and it's
great for that hard work to be recognized with consistent Emmy® nominations and
Eric Heisler ‘07 and Julie Kupchella ‘07 were also recognized with
regional Emmys®. Both were members of SUTV as students.
