Former student Chental Song Bembry has been selected to receive the prestigious Early Risers award at the 2015 BET Honors.

We initially met Chental as an invited guest on a BETV segment hosted by our students when she was just 16 years old. She returned to attend our TV Studio Production workshop as a student herself, then later became a Media Intern helping other young people get started. She is now a broadcast journalism major at Hampton University Scripps School of Journalism and Communications.

Student Co-Hosts: Rudmita Mark, Ciara Stanley, Janina Calle Taped on location at Riverview Television Studios

Chental is currently working on turning her books into an animated series, writing 90-minute holiday specials and several episodes for 11-minute TV segments.

We're excited to see her recognized on a national level for her achievements as an author, entrepreneur, and motivational speaker. She also happens to be a sincere, caring, intelligent, and amazingly talented young lady.
