Gresham claims national award at Broadcast Education Association’s 2016 Festival of Media Arts

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Barry Gresham, instructor in the APSU Department of Communication, recently received a national award at the Broadcast Education Association’s annual convention in Las Vegas. Gresham won the Faculty Short Form Sports Video Category: Best of Competition: “Reedy Sears – APSU Hall of Fame.”

The video was produced for the annual APSU Hall of Fame induction ceremonies and chronicled the life and career of Sears, who was one of the University’s greatest two-sport athletes from 1939-1942. Sears lost his life in World War II as a member of the US Army Air Corp.

“This was truly a collaborative effort with my colleagues and students and I’m very grateful for the time and dedication that went in to creating this piece by all of them,” said Gresham. “It was an honor and privilege to be able to tell the story of Mr. Sears, who paid the ultimate sacrifice by giving his life for his country.”

Collaborating with Gresham on this video were Dr. Mike Gotcher and David Ellison from the APSU Department of Communication and students Brent Richardson, Christian Hodges and Ethan Schmidt.
