Emerson Alumnus Henry Winkler ’67 and Professor Cristina Kotz Cornejo were presented with American Spirit Awards Wednesday, May 29, from The Caucus for Producers, Writers & Directors for their storytelling work.
Cornejo, associate chair of production in the Visual and Media Arts Department, was honored for Special Achievement in Educating New Filmmakers. Winkler, an Emmy-winning actor, producer, director, and children’s book author, received a Caucus Legend Award during the ceremony held in Los Angeles.
“We are thrilled that the Caucus has recognized these two outstanding Emersonians,” said Provost Michaele Whelan. “Their considerable talent and their commitment over time to telling stories that enlighten, empower, and entertain, exemplify the College’s mission and make us proud.”
