Tampa Bay Arts & Education Network is proud to announce that on October 1, 2018, our past intern, Madeleine (Maddie) Glas, received the Mike Wallace Memorial Scholarship, given in memory of legendary newsmen Mike Wallace and funded by CBS News.
“This is a huge honor for a filmmaker,” said Maddie.
The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences is a professional association dedicated to the advancement of television and related electronic media and best known for its Emmy Awards that recognize excellence in a number of categories. The Academy also sponsors programs, seminars, and scholarships for high school and colleges in cities served by the 19 local chapters. In addition, through its non-profit Foundation, the National Organization awards scholarships to outstanding high school seniors who intend to pursue a degree in communications with an emphasis on any aspect of the television industry.
Maddie received the scholarship for her hard work and dedication as a filmmaker. She submitted three documentaries “Second Chance”, “Impact of the Arts”, and “Someday”.
“Being at the Lincoln Center in New York at the 39th Annual News and Documentary Emmy Awards was truly a life-changing experience," said Maddie. "I got to network with filmmakers in another market and got a better understanding of the film industry." Maddie will be using the scholarship funds to pursue a 4-year degree at the University of Central Florida.
Maddie Glas came to TBAE as a high school intern from Howard W. Blake High School in the Spring of 2018. TBAE Network is proud of her and her accomplishments.
