Senior Wins Second Student Emmy Award in Two Years

LHWHS senior Lizzie Esther was recently named a student Emmy award-winner in the Multimedia Journalism category by the National Academy for Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS).

Esther’s interview, “Swimming for Joy(ce): A Family Legacy,” was inspired by her good friend and three-time state swimming champion, Mary Joyce Bezzant, a fellow senior.

“MJ’s is an amazing story, and I was honored to share my friend’s successes with the world,” she said.

“Besides, it was great fun filming for the first time underwater!”

Esther also was a nominee in the Photography category for her football highlight video, “We Are Ladue Football.”

She worked with Mr. Steve Boyd and other high school students as part of the Ladue Score Board Team filming on the field and working courtside for various sporting events the past two semesters.

Esther will be recognized at the NATAS Mid-America Regional Emmy Awards on Oct. 26 in Overland Park, Kan.

She received her first student Emmy award in the Writing category for her 2023 film, “The Forgotten Leftovers of Meaningful Things.”

Esther said she is extremely grateful for all the help she has received from her teachers and advisors Mr. Don Goble and Mrs. Marteana Davidson.

She could not have found her passion without them or the support of Ladue’s Broadcast Technology Department.
