emmy award greg st clair jr

Greg St. Clair, Jr. ‘17 recently won an Emmy award for his work as an associate producer on the “NFL 100 Greatest” television series. 

Although a graduate of Stevenson’s Accounting program, Greg ultimately fell in love with film after declaring a minor in Film and Moving Image. “Although I am not pursuing a career in accounting, the networking and relationship building opportunities provided by SU’s Accounting department have helped me in advancing my current career path in film. One reason I received a job opportunity from the Baltimore Ravens was due to a networking connection,” Greg says. 

After taking an elective English course where the students had to dissect movies and stories into common themes, Greg felt that film was his true calling. While part of the Film and Moving Image program, he had the opportunity to attend the SXSW Film Festival in 2016: “[this] really opened my eyes to all of the possibilities in film.” 

As Associate Producer on “NFL 100 Greatest” for the NFL Network, Greg produced a handful of segments, including pieces on Ozzie Newsome and Super Bowl Halftime shows. You can find these works here. One day, when Greg opened a package in the mail to find an Emmy award with his name on it, he felt what he could only describe as surreal.  

“I feel validated on my decision to pursue my minor as a career path in lieu of my major, that I’m on the right path, and that I am good enough to be in this industry. That being said, my goals are still greater than this award and the part that I played, as I am continuing to grow and develop my skills as filmmaker and as a storyteller. That’s what I continue to strive for.” 

Looking back at his time at Stevenson University, Greg says, “Stevenson is like the land of opportunity. I wouldn’t be where I’m at today if it wasn’t for Stevenson."

Quarry Theatre

With the upcoming Presidential election, the Baltimore-based company Quarry Theatre continues its community discourse around the importance of voting with The Discourse Project, which is conceived and directed by Stevenson University’s Theatre and Media Performance Program Coordinator and Associate Professor, Ryan Clark. 

In examining the words of prominent civil rights advocates such as Barbara Jordan, Shirley Chisholm, Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, and Harvey Milk, The Discourse Project takes the themes of freedom, equality, and democracy and reminds us how, with our vote, it is “We the People” who hold the power to realize the greatest promises for our country. The historical texts are being performed by actors from across the country including four Stevenson alumni, with the project running from July 4 to November 3, Election Day. 

The weekly videos can be found across Quarry Theatre’s social media platforms, including YouTubeFacebookTwitterInstagram, and TikTok

Ryan Clark says, “In many ways, I feel this is one of the most important projects I have ever directed.  The foundation of our democracy is beginning to crack and crumble and the only way to ensure the continuity of the nation is to vote.  Listening to these whispers from the past, helps us make informed decisions about the future.  It’s important to know that America wasn’t always this way and when it was this way (i.e. during the Civil War) we had great leaders with inspired imaginations to help us form a more perfect union.”

Below is an audio clip from WYPR 88.1FM about The Discourse Project.
