Community Producers and Sustainability Academy Win National Award
Local community video producers Mark Cline Lucey and Susan Cline Lucey received top honors for their educational profile Yoga and Mindfulness Boost Learning at the Stustainability Academy in the annual competition recognizing the best community media independent producers across the nation.
“Winning this national award really affirms the quality of the production, but also the strength of the work we’re doing with students in Burlington,” said Mark Cline Lucey, a teacher at Vermont Commons School and a community producer with RETN Channel 16. Susan Cline Lucey is a teacher at Burlington’s Sustainability Academy and is a Yoga 4 Classrooms® instructor.
The Cline Luceys received the award for best educational profile by an independent producer at the Hometown Media Awards presented by the Alliance for Community Media, which represents more than 3,000 public, educational and governmental access organizations throughout the country.
The national Hometown Media Awards are the Emmy Awards for access television stations like RETN. Mark took our summer course for teachers and has been an avid producer on his own, with his students, and even with his family ever since. We're thrilled to see him and Susan receive the recognition they deserve.
Our executive director Scott Campitelli accepted the award on the Cline Lucey's behalf at a ceremony in Pasadena, California on Aug. 13, 2015.
