We knew we were getting some on-the-ball students in our first 3+1 class and we have proof of just that with this news. The accelerated 3+1 program allows students to earn a bachelors and a master’s degree in four years and is designed for incoming School of Communications students who rank in the top 20 percent of their high school class and have a combined SAT score of 1200 or an ACT score of 27. Among the first set of them is Film, Television & Media Arts freshman Bethany Fernandes who has just won a high school student version of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Emmy award.
Bethany’s feature story, Close to 190,000, is about a light house in Fairhaven, Massachusetts, and it won both a National Student Emmy and a New England Student Emmy for video essay (single- camera only), one of four New England awards she earned.
The awards ceremony was held at the Newseum in Washington D.C. and Bethany tells us she just cannot contain her excitement.
