One of my new colleagues, Dr. Stephany Slaughter, just won an Emmy for the documentary she helped to produce! That’s so exciting – I’ve never known an Emmy winner before.
Stephany is a faculty member in the Spanish Department at Alma College. She was a field producer for the Film “Which Way Home”, which follows Latin American children who are attempting to cross into the United States to meet up with their families.
We hardly ever hear the stories of migrant children, and those children who are migrating alone are particularly vulnerable. It is great to see them being given a voice, and for this type of documentary programming to be rewarded by the Academy.
