Germantown High School’s award winning news station GHS-TV added to its vast collection of awards at the 14th Annual Mid-South Regional Student Television Production Awards. Senior Raneem Imam brought back the Emmy in the talent category for her on-air work at GHS-TV.
GHS-TV was also nominated six other times including: Bryan Scott as talent; Anne Frank and Me, "Bullying Prevention", and "Sneakerheads" news stories; GHS-TVs’ very own newscast Wake Up Germantown; and Live Coverage of the 44th Annual Germantown Festival in the public affairs category.
The ceremony took place at The John Seigenthaler Center at Vanderbilt University on Wednesday April 27th .
