RENO, NV (Jun. 28, 2021) – PBS Reno Content Creator Guinivere Clark has been named NCET’s 2021 Rising Star of the Year in Creative Services. This award is presented to a practitioner of creative services in fields such as marketing, public relations, and content creation. The awardee, who is born after 1990, demonstrates leadership and innovation in his or her field.
“I am proud to be able to tell the stories of the beautiful and diverse community I live and breathe every day,” said Clark. “For that hard work to be recognized by my community is a great honor. I am extremely grateful to be surrounded by and learn from such talented and inspiring individuals.”
Clark is one of three PBS Reno content creators who produce ARTEFFECTS, a series that celebrates local artists and arts organizations. Clark has earned three Communicator Awards for stories she produced for the series. In addition, Clark manages the station’s promotional content, which includes “sizzles” that highlight the station’s accomplishments throughout the year. Clark’s “Superman” sizzle, which highlights PBS Reno’s Educational Services, earned a Communicator Award of Distinction in 2019. Clark is also the station’s FAA Part 107 licensed remote pilot, AKA “drone pilot,” an endeavor she began in 2014.
Clark started her career with PBS Reno in 2015 as an intern through the Red House Project at Reno High School. In 2019, she graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno, where she studied Journalism and Cinema Media Studies at the Donald W. Reynolds School of Journalism.
“Guin is an exceptional young talent, and those of us at PBS Reno have benefited from her skillset, creativity and contributions to the community for years,” said Megan Myers, PBS Reno Vice President of Content and Marketing. “I have had the privilege to work with Guin since she was a teenager to where she is now, and she is most certainly a rising star here. We are so proud of her for the recognition from NCET.”
Now in its 14th year, the NCET Technology Awards celebrate the northern Nevada individuals and companies who have greatly enhanced the growth and prestige of the technology community, while the EDAWN Awards recognize the people and resources that have played an integral part in contributing to the growth of our community.
