Mass Communication Students Receive National Award

North Greenville University College of Mass Communication students were awarded a national award of excellence at the Broadcasters Education Association’s (BEA) Super-Regional Conference held Sept. 21-23 in Pittsburgh, PA.  BEA is the premiere international academic media organization, driving insights, excellence in media production, and career advancement for educators, students, and professionals.

Members of NGU’s Vision TV staff received the award based on their news package “NGU Presidential Search” submitted as an entry into a competition open to universities from across the country.  Alyssa Ashe from Greer, SC, reported, Mason Freitas from Fountain Inn, SC, filmed, and Clayton Caldwell from Williamston, SC, created graphics for the package.

The story was told to update the university about the ongoing search for the school’s eighth president. Members of the presidential search committee, students, and faculty were interviewed about what traits they desired in their next president.

"This was a simple opportunity to make a news package for our video practicum class (Vision TV) and we covered an important time in our school's history,” said Freitas. “The presidential search committee was making a decision that would be remembered as part of NGU's legacy and the word needed to be spread! We entered this piece into the competition to show our fellow students that our work is high standard and deserves recognition."

Department of Mass Communication Chair Heidi Campbell accepted the award at the conference on behalf of her students.

“Our Vision Media staff does excellent work in creating content that targets our NGU audience. This national award speaks to the quality of our student’s work and to the quality of the education our Mass Communication students receive,” said Campbell. “I am very proud of our student media and was honored to receive this award for these students at the BEA awards luncheon.”

The competition was open to universities across the country for audio works, documentary videos, interactive media, news, and sports.
