|UND Television Center recognized at Midwest Journalism Conference|
The Television Center was recently recognized at the Midwest Journalism Conference in Bloomington, Minn. They were awarded first place by the Northwest Broadcast News Association in the documentary/special category for its work on the documentary, “UND Clay: The Cable Years.”
“I think it is in recognition of everyone who was involved in producing the program,” says documentary producer Aaron Quanbeck. “Don Miller's (art professor) assistance was crucial, our photographer Scott Lima did a fantastic job, and everyone else who had a part in it made the award possible.”
“UND Clay: The Cable Years”, describes the history and tradition of the University of North Dakota Ceramics Department, specifically the involvement of Margaret Kelly Cable.
“Margaret Kelly Cable was a remarkable woman who overcame a lot of adversity to create the ceramics department. I'm glad we were able to tell her amazing story,” says Quanbeck. “I hope that the documentary does her justice and that through it more people will learn of her tremendous contributions.”
The Television Center competed against six other states in the contest including Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
