Kathleen Flynn wins regional Emmy award!

Brenna Gourgeot, 17, left, tears up as she talks with her math teacher, Tim Dilligan, after graduating valedictorian from Sci High on Tuesday evening in New Orleans. Dilligan became a father figure to Brenna, who has never known her own dad. "She's been one of my top students both academically and also as a classroom leader," he said.

Remember that post I wrote last week about all of the great video being done these days by newspaper photographers? One of the pieces I used as an example was the heartwarming story by my staff photographer at Nola.com and The Times-Picayune, Kathleen Flynn.  She had followed Brenna Gourgeot, a high school student overcoming great personal tragedy and excelling in school.

We just learned that that video has won a regional Emmy from the National Association of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) Suncoast Chapter!

Here’s the entire video again. It’s worth a watch:

 



Still photojournalism and video journalism
