Our sincere apologies regarding last week’s announcement of the Governor’s Award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Southeast. Melissa Goodman also shared in the award along with Ric Reitz, Wilbur Fitzgerald and Shay Bentley-Griffin. The story was adjusted to reflect the source of the press release and complete information. We will have more on the event and pictures soon.
