Park Hill South High School graduate Shaefer Schuetz earned the Walter Cronkite Scholarship award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Mid-America chapter for his achievement in broadcast journalism while he was at Park Hill South.

This group, which also gives out the EMMY award, gives the Cronkite award to students who demonstrate potential as future broadcast journalists. Schuetz will receive his honor at the annual Mid-America EMMY Gala on Oct. 3 in St. Louis, Mo.

Schuetz, who hopes to someday work in sports broadcasting, said “this scholarship will help me make that dream turn into a reality.”
