WILMORE, KY—Asbury College students were honored with a 2006 Ohio Valley NATAS Student Production Award on July 15 at the 42nd Annual Midwestern Regional Emmy Awards ceremony at Belterra Resort in Belterra, Ind.
May graduates Heather Born ’06 of Danville, Ky., Quincy Burt ’06 of Liberty, Ky., Kim Barnett ’06 of Shelbyville, Ky., and Jonathan Greenhoe ’06 of Ada, Mich., and current students Matt Hogencamp ’07 of Cape Coral, Fla., and Todd Zurin ’07 of Mount Joy, Pa., were recognized for the “Zweifel Invitational Sports Broadcast”. The winning entry was produced as part of the recent graduates’ senior directed study and was created during the Zweifel Invitation Basketball Tournament held Nov. 11-12 last year.

NATAS or the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences recognizes daytime, sports, news and documentary programming. The Ohio Valley Chapter presents the coveted Emmy Award to television professionals in thirteen markets and four states including Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio and West Virginia, making scholarships available to students at accredited colleges and universities throughout the region.
Asbury College was one of only two student groups recognized at this year’s award ceremony. This is the College’s second student Emmy; the first was awarded in 2003.
“It truly is an honor to win the award for the Media Communications Department and certainly for Asbury College,” Greenhoe said.
As a surprise this year, each student recognized also received a copy of the software program, Final Cut Studio production suite, donated by Apple Computer.
“What made this project what it was is the team,” Hogencamp said. “While we do have very talented people in our program, individually we could never make it happen. It is the combined efforts of the producers, the engineers and the on-air talent that made it a good production. Without the team we had, it would not have been possible.”
