VotL wins Broadcast Education Association Award

We received news last week that Voices of the Lumbee won first place in the Broadcast Education Association’s District 2 Faculty Video Competition! The conference will be held at the end of September and clips of the film will be showcased at the event. Special thanks to everyone involved that helped make this possible. We hope this is the first of many!
